Gondry/ Carax/ Bong's "Tokyo!" to premiere in Toronto on May 21st!

by Chris MaGee

Last year the Over the Top Festival premiered Noboru Iguchi's horror/ action/ splatterfest "The Machine Girl", a film that I really didn't think that much of, but quickly became a huge hit here in our fair city. Now the Over the Top fest is back and they've got another film that I hope will catch the city's imagination like "Machine Girl" did. That's the omnibus film "Tokyo!" directed by Michel Gondry, Bong Joon-ho, and Leos Carax. I`ve heard a lot of good things about this film, or films to be accurate, so I know I`ll be one of the folks in the audience at the Royal Cinema (608 College Street West) on May 21st at 9:15 p.m. You should be there too!

I'm with you. Machine Girl was crap.

My favorite was Merde. It was spectacular! I heard it comes out on DVD June 30th and I can't wait to get it.

I'm with Jason. Merde was amazing. The other two are no less engaging however.

The Tokyo! DVD comes out June 30 (www.tokyothemovie.com).
I preordered it on Amazon, through the site. I can't wait.
Better that NY Stories. Best tryptich since Amorres Perroes.
