This week Motel Hell dive into the life and work of Shinya Tsukamoto (塚本 晋也), legendary Japanese auteur director. Dick Fetti and Ben the Beardo discuss Tsukamoto's childhood, his persistent love of kaiju films and his origins as an 8MM film maker, actor, playwright and director. If you want to know about the man behind "Tetsuo: The Iron Man", "Tokyo Fist" and "Vital", here's the place to start! In honor of Mr. Tsukamoto's life-long love of kaiju (and because he appears in it), the boys start with a review of incredible "Shin Godzilla" by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi from 2016.
