The A.V. Club - Scott Tobias
The entries aren't equally strong, of course, but each comes from a sharp outsider's perspective, approaching Tokyo as a strange, mysterious organism that infects the populace.
New York Post - V.A. Musetto
Carax, who hadn't made a movie since "Pola X" in 1999 comes off best.
The Hollywood Reporter - Unnamed
Though these vignettes appear frivolous and inconsequential when set beside the directors' features, they will tickle the funny bones of a general audience. A safe choice for fantastic fests, worldwide cinemas will open to the kind of audiences who bought tickets to see "Paris J'taime" or "To Each His Own Cinema."
Village Voice - J. Hoberman
Mutants abound as each episode trips the light fantastic.
The New York Times - Stephen Holden
Both in its parts and in the sum of them Tokyo! is playfully and sometimes disorientingly apocalyptic.
