Neo tokyo cool but weird
21 June 2001 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to obtain this film off an online auctions. And this is my review the film displays three short stories all extremely trippy.

The first one involves a girl, a circus, a cat and a mirror and a parade of very odd animals. This one makes you feel like your on acid at one point.

The second on is called the running man about a psionic race car driver who pushes his limits. Very Cool.

The third one contains probaly the most talking out of all three. itis a grim sardonic comedy about a man who can't stop a robot crew from working. it has a very ironic ending.
