Movie Release: Tokyo!

It seems Hollywood decided not to try and compete with Watchmen so there aren't much else coming out today, BUT there are several indie flicks being released. The one I definitely want to catch is Tokyo!

SYNOPSIS: Triptych feature telling three separate tales set in Tokyo, Japan. Tokyo! centers on a man who has lived for 10 years as a hikikomori, (a term used in Japan for people unable to adjust to society and so they never leave their homes) and what happens when he falls in love one day with a pizza delivery girl. Tokyo! follows the story of a wannabe movie director who arrives in Tokyo with his girlfriend only to find that parts of her bones are turning into wood.

Just from the synopsis it looks like it will be interesting, but the film has 3 directors which include Michel Gondry, Leos Carax and Bong Joon-Ho. You probably know Michel Gondry... he did Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep and a bunch of really cool music videos so we can expect some trippy and weird visuals. Anyway, check out the trailer I was definitely sold.

Tokyo! comes out today in limited release, but if it's not out in your area make sure you remember to rent it when the time comes.
