Movie #3: Tokyo!

(2008, d. Leos Carax, Michel Gondry, Bong Joon-Ho)

Day 3 of my “Movie A Day” yearlong competition is Tokyo!, an anthology of three short films filmed in Tokyo, Japan by three international filmmakers and two of my favorites. These stories are strange and they get stranger, but they’re extremely creative. Joon-Ho Bong’s has a really cool female character in it (whose body is covered in tattoos of buttons, each if pressed, correlate to a different reaction). Gondry’s is pretty clever and full of existential meaning as usual. But my favorite had to be Carax’s “Merde” – an extremely disturbing vignette – of a weird sewer creature person that terrorizes Tokyo.
