Moments from Tokyo!

Tokyo! was a movie released last year that was actually three short movies all set in, and one would assume inspired by, Tokyo. The three directors, it should also be noted, are foreign. To Japan that is.

The directors were, from the top image down - Michel Gondry, Leos Carax and Bong Joon-ho. I liked all of the movies, but Andy and Olivia weren't sold on the middle one, an unsettling piece about a somewhat demonic foreigner who lives in the sewers of Tokyo. As a movie made up of short pieces I'd expected it would be patchy, but it was actually really strong throughout, and so - I recommend it to you.
