Zilele acestea, Fantastic Fest se află în plină desfășurare în SUA. Și poate că aș fi trecut cu vederea un festival ce are loc atât de departe și unde nu-i inclus niciun film românesc. Însă ceva mi-a atras atenția azi-dimineață : entuziasmul tuturor celor care au văzut Tokyo Tribe aseară, în premieră.
Nu știu când/dacă se va lansa și la noi, dar iată de câte reacții pozitive s-a bucurat peste noapte.

I've never seen anything like TOKYO TRIBE. Is it a movie or a party? Is it a party or a living, breathing thing? #FantasticFest

TOKYO TRIBE is a colorful shot of gangsta wackness. Dope opening, phat cats & hot beats, y'all…till the break of dawn! #FantasticFest

You can put the opening reel of TOKYO TRIBE next to GOODFELLAS, RAISING ARIZONA or Kusturica's UNDERGROUND.

Tokyo Tribe is an inspirational hip hop musical gang film with unrelenting energy and entertainment value. I couldn't have loved it more.

How is it fair that Sion Sono makes movies so well? TOKYO TRIBE is yet another masterpiece. Perfectly created and delivered #FantasticFest

If THE WARRIORS and KILL BILL had a kid that was really into hip hop, SCARFACE, and dick jokes, it's be TOKYO TRIBE. #FantasticFest

No combination of words exist to describe the full essence of TOKYO TRIBE. You just need to experience it. #FantasticFest

Tokyo Tribe: Why do other movies even exist? We've hit our high point with this.

TOKYO TRIBE is AMAZING. I don't have the hyperbole to capture its mind blowing hip hop fever dream of glorious madness. #fantasticfest

TOKYO TRIBE is the CITIZEN KANE of batshit misogynistic hip hop turf war hip hop action musicals. #FantasticFest

Iar în final, o părere mai puțin pozitivă.

TOKYO TRIBE: Japanese rap musical about warring gangs. Not my thing. It felt repetitively gaudy and jittery for 2 hrs. #fantasticfest
