Editorial Reviews

Live From Tokyo takes one into a world where ideas and genres are pushed to their extremes, with the general sentiment that there is new music waiting to be created. The documentary looks at Tokyo's music culture as a reflection of Japanese society and in relation to international music culture. Tokyo's reputation for an overwhelming variety of global information, media-saturated urban environment and cutting edge innovation, makes it the perfect sample for addressing a new outlook on music culture as it explores this eccentric music culture set within a modern Japanese megalopolis.

The director and his team immersed themselves in the Tokyo music scene, and captured a unique and vivid view of the culture and dedication of these musicians. The film contrasts daily life in Tokyo with the vibrant after hours life in music venues. It provides a look at the pay-to-play performance model, where bands pay clubs to perform, and how that drives an unusual dedication to their art.

The film shows a beautiful panoramic backdrop of Tokyo, and introduces the audience to many of the up and coming hot bands from Japan, and the characters that own and operate the venues. The music, the imagery and the commentary are blended into a highly entertaining film.

Director Lewis Rapkin immerses the viewer in the hyper sensory world of the underground Tokyo music scene in this stellar documentary. With a focus on colorful characters and atmospheres, this film portrays the lesser known niches of Tokyo's music via interviews, music videos, live performances and evocative images of the metropolis' neon nightlife. Buoyant yet informative, this doc is must view for fans of emerging music and Japanese cultural enthusiasts alike.

A surprisingly little gem of a doc on the Tokyo music scene. Provides an interesting glimpse into the culture and energy of the underground music of Tokyo. The artistic photography and editing rises this program above the usual documentary. Recommended!
