Tokyo Tribe

Tokyo Tribe ★★½


A violent futuristic gang war hip-hop musical? Directed by Sion Sono? (I recently saw Guilty of Romance and really liked it.) If that description doesn't appeal to you I'm not sure I want to be friends. The style of the film is great and although it takes a few tracks to get into the music that's not absolutely terrible either. Overall though it's a one-note joke that overstays its welcome, even though the action climax is fun (the villain's death is great and there's literally a DJ just sat on the sidelines playing music while everyone's fighting). It's something that has to be seen to be believed, a cult classic in the making.
