Alone in Tokyo
Posted on March 19, 2010 by Kris Nelson
Gorgeous footage from the glorious metro hub of Tokyo, emphasizing the anonymity, technology, beauty, even poverty (homeless) that exemplifies any major city, utilizing meticulously crisp pacing and stylistic editing and filmic techniques. By divulging unfamiliar lesser known areas of the city, Alone in Tokyo inadvertently invites us to familiarize ourselves with the highlighted strangers.
Ethereal blippy music from Air (track: “Alone in Kyoto”) doesn’t hurt, either.
