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.
