Bong Joon-ho 4/5.
Leos Carax 3/5.
Michel Gondry 1/5.
good clever heartfelt moving picture talkie story art movies yay
shaking tokyo and ryo kase portraying the most huggable filmmaker ever made me love this
48x better than "New York, I Love You" 4x better than "Paris, Je T'aime"
If I could vote only "Shaking Tokyo", I'd give it five stars. The first two episodes left me quite indifferent...
The Gondry was all right until the last ten minutes which were poorly done & cloyingly twee. The Bong was beautifully shot but twaddle. Push my love button, give me a break. He's made superb films, but ick. & Carax's (and Lavant's) Merde was anarchic genius. Incredibly funny -- as a reviewer said Boudu meets Godzilla -- with a dark core of Japanese war crimes and French racism. Brilliant.
surrealistically beautiful stories.
Tokyo fuels the three directors' creativity.. a poetic passage for Gondry, an iconic MERDE where Le-Oscar-a-X is pulling out history and rage from the underground with WW2 era grenades .. and the most contemporary Bong Jon-Ho panicking Hikikomori
"I don't know what this is about, but there are sure a lot of neon lights" - Noj, my co-worker.
"merde" was my favourite. the others i liked a lot too, but merde! i just cracked up. it was just by lucky coincidence though that i had read "the master and margarita" right before watching this, but i probably would have loved it either way. it went all out and i always appreciate that.
The Merde segment is one of the most confounding pieces of cinema I've ever seen
Gondry : 3,5/5 Good but I was expecting something a little bit more creative given his previous works.
Carax : -/5 I couldn't get through it so I won't rate it. Seemed too ridiculous for my taste.
Bong Joun-Ho : 10/5 Yes, I freaking loved it. It blew my mind. I found it incredibly poetic and touching. Bravo.
I love Carax, but here he's a major let down.
I've never seen a film quite like Tokyo! before. All 3 stories has its own appeals, this collection of strange tales is original and very interesting.

Can't wait for M. Merde in America
Three talented directors bored me to death. Sorry.
Shaking Tokyo is my favourite.That was intense! I loved the earthquake metaphore and the idea of button tattoos.
