Here’s a treat for film fans: the release of the latest film from Shinya Tsukamoto, the cult director best known for his groundbreaking 1989 cyber-punk classic “Tetsuo, the Iron Man.” “Fires on the Plain” is a searing look at one soldier’s struggle in the jungles of the Philippines in the closing stages of WWII. By portraying a man who is sick and starving, and under threat from locals, an approaching American offensive and even his fellow soldiers, Tsukamoto creates a depiction of hell on earth. The film is playing with English subtitles in select screenings, which offers a rare chance to catch a new Japanese work in all its cinematic glory.
