  • Uneven by Herzog's standards, but it's so intriguing as a premise that it carries you through the film.

  • Werner Herzog's most satisfying non-documentary feature in a decade...

  • A minor but tasty bit of mochi from Werner Herzog.

  • Is it a docudrama? A meta-doc? Staged reality? However you define it, it's enthralling, unsettling and typically Herzogian.

  • Like those eerily blinking robots manning the concierge desk, it's stuck in an uncanny valley.

  • But Herzog doesn't dig deeply enough, while his penchant for using non-professional actors and allowing them to simply fart about in Tokyo tourist spots eventually becomes wearisome.
