Neo Tokyo is a stunning masterpiece from the brainchild of legendary anime, producer Masao Maruyama (Tokyo Godfathers). This incredible DVD showcases the remarkable talents of Rintaro (Metropolis), Yoshiyaki Kawajiri (Ninja Scroll) and Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira) in three highly individual short films held together by the thread of the fantastic.
Rintaro's Labyrinth Labyrinthos is an elegant fantasy exploring a little girl's impressionable imagination.
Kawajiri's The Running Man, as seen on MTV, is a high-octane futuristic thriller revolving around a deadly Formula-1 race.
And Otomo's Construction Cancellation Order is a Bradbury-esque allegory speculating on the dangers of man's over-reliance with technology.
DVD Features: Previews.
Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English Subtitles.
