Tetsuo: The Bullet Man
Calm office worker Anthony, son of an American father and a Japanese mother, lives in Tokyo with his wife Yuriko and their little son Tom. Since Anthony's mother died of cancer, his scientist father has been overly fearful for their health and rigidly subjects Anthony and Tom to monthly physicals.

Walking home, Tom is killed in a hit and run before Anthony's eyes. Losing their boy pushes Yuriko over the edge and triggers violent emotions in Anthony, whose body begins to transform. Little by little, his cells turn into iron.

When the driver who killed Tom reappears and Anthony learns the truth about his father's past experiments on human guinea pigs and about his mother's death, Anthony mutates into a mass of metal – a human weapon fuelled by an uncontrollable rage.

My Idiot Brother
Ned Rochlin (Paul Rudd) chooses to look for the good in every situation and the best in everyone he meets, which often puts him at odds with the world around him – especially his family. After all, what can you say about a guy who is quite easily tricked into to selling pot to a uniformed police officer?

After he is released from jail and finds that his girlfriend has kicked him out, he stays with each of his family members, with predictable results.

As each sister's life starts to reach a crisis point, it seems to them that Ned is always in the middle of every misunderstanding, and despite his good intentions, always seems to say or do the wrong thing at the wrong time.

In a series of painfully funny revelations and confessions, Ned's entire family starts to realize that maybe, in believing and trusting the people around him without fail, Ned isn't such an idiot after all.
