Our take

Letting three master directors loose in Japan’s capital, this triptych film playfully explores the city’s potential for magic and mayhem. From a gentle comedy about urban alienation to a wild monster-movie parody, these shorts by Leos Carax, Michel Gondry, and Bong Joon Ho are inventive delights.
