DVD filler perhaps but it is interesting enough to get through the ten minute run time
This short documentary was on the Tokyp Drift DVD and, despite its low rating on IMDb, I found it more interesting than the actual films (which I thought was aimed at boys a lot younger than myself). The topic of the film is more or less the experience of the cast and crew of shooting in Tokyo. It provides some interesting moments and some background to the challenge of the city most interesting was the lack of permits etc that meant the crew could never totally shut the set while shooting on location in the city itself.
Of course this is not to suggest that it is a great documentary because it is merely a piece of DVD filler. The contributions provide value but it is thinly spread and does feature the stars just promoting the film rather than talking totally honestly. To its credit it isn't padded with clips from the film but rather shots of the scenes being shot and I did actually find it interesting. Alright, not interesting in the "wow" way but more the "oh, OK" sort of way but that was good enough for the ten minute running time.
