Tokyo!

I dragged myself to the local arthouse theater today to catch the Italian mafioso flick Gomorrah.  And it was totally worth it–review to follow (it may receive four bitchin’ stars, I haven’t decided yet).  But before the film started, I saw the most amazing trailer, for a film called Tokyo! Again, I’m bummed I hadn’t even heard of it before tonight, especially when the US release date was March 6th (cross your fingers so that it comes to Salt Lake).  I can’t wait to see this.  It doesn’t hurt that it has a 91% approval rating from top critics on rottentomatoes.com…  I know Michel Gondry is made fun of all the time (most viciously at the Stuff White People Like blog), but he’s a genius and I love his stuff.  Bong Joon-Ho and Leos Carax can’t exactly be called hacks either.  Has anyone seen this?  Is it as awesome as the trailer?

    Hmm… I really didn’t think much of Gomorrah. Tokyo! looks great though.

    I saw it, and liked 2 out of the 3 stories a lot. You should definitely see it if you get a chance. Tokyo Sonata is amazing also.
