  1. Great, so many music documentaries I have to see now. Hopefuly at least some of them, like Joe Meek f.e.

  2. I almost got a Michel Gondry Science of SLeep vibe from this, especially the part with the television zooming off.

    Perrey is such a whimsical, senior geek. His smile upon discovering the Star Trek comic was priceless!

  3. Tokyo! Featuring a segment from Michel Gondry is out on DVD now. It’s an incredible look at the city of Tokyo from the perspectives of three visionary directors. Check it out!
