  1. r u f o's rating of the film Tokyo Idols

    Funny and creepy. A bit flat but a good informative documentary.

  2. José Neves's rating of the film Tokyo Idols

    Digital. Indie Lisboa # 2 (out of Paul Vecchiali and Jem Choen retrospectives).

  3. Michael Peer's rating of the film Tokyo Idols

    An eye-opening, absurd and twisted documentary subjecting a bizarre Japanese social phenomenon. Asian culture may be one of the most self-depreciating and what is happening with "Idols" and their middle-aged "fans" is disturbing and unforgettable. The documentary moves briskly but doesn't quite sustain it's lean 90 minute runtime. This kind of subject may have worked better on Vice or a short doc, not a full one.
