Tokyo Tribe (2014) Sion Sono's Battle Rap Musical!
Tokyo Tribe (2014) Sion Sono\'s Battle Rap Musical!

Sion Sono directs "The World's First Rap Musical!"
Enjoy a tour of Tokyo's Underbelly for a night of Turf Wars & Rap Battles

director: Sion Sono
starring: Ryohei Suzuki Young Dais Nana Seino Shunsuke Daitoh Yui Ichikawa Miyuki Yokoyama

In an alternate Japan, territorial street gangs form opposing factions are collectively known as the Tokyo Tribes. Merra, leader of the Wu-Ronz Clan, crosses the turf line in his bid to conquer all of Tokyo. This begins the major War.

The movie is emotional. Kaleidoscopic. Explosive. Sexy. It's everything anybody could want in a futuristic encounter. And the final segment is one of the best ever put on film. It is probably Sion Sono's best motion picture, the perfect sequel to WHY DON'T YOU GO PLAY IN HELL?. Here is an absurd mix between WARRIORS, traditional yakuza flicks, and an entire history of hip hop videos. The beats are tight, the visuals mind-blowing, the whole thing unspools like an insane hallucination. As good as Sono's recent films GUILTY OF ROMANCE and TAG may have been, nothing can prepare the audience for the sheer wonder of this masterpiece.

As a side note, this film also features Miyuki Yokoyama, the controversial star of the 'Franchise of Cruelty' films HITCH-HIKE, LIPSTICK, et al.

A Japanese film with English subtitles; widescreen format, fully uncut version (117 min.), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC, playable on any American machine. Extras include original theatrical trailer.
