Critic Reviews for Tokyo Idols

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (1)

  • With this fascinating and troubling documentary, Kyoko Miyake investigates the Japanese phenomenon of very young female pop singers, known as idols, who cater to a passionate fan base of grown men.

    September 25, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Director Kyoko Miyake attempts to demystify the scene, which has so infected the West's general view of Japanese pop culture, but comes up short each time, every new theory encountering contradictions and uneasy conclusions.

    April 26, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It's not a movie so much about idol culture as for it, with Miyake trying to knock idol culture back into reality.

    January 26, 2017 | Full Review…
  • This eye-opening documentary looks at the idol industry - with its seemingly endless supply of squeaky, cutesy, Manga-styled schoolgirl pop stars - and its principle consumers, predominantly adult males.

    January 21, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A lively inquiry that reveals more contradictions than consensus.

    January 21, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Very competently made and raises some interesting questions, but much more lies beneath the surface.
