Of the trio of mismatched short stories in this anthology tribute to Japan’s capital, only writer-director Bong Joon-ho’s tale of a hikikomori (hermit) and his epiphany with a pizza delivery girl merits a deep look. The other two are slack expense-account phone-ins: Michel Gondry’s account of a young homeless woman who turns into a wooden chair, and the story of a green-clad, red-haired, wild man who pops out of the sewers and terrifies shoppers, by Leos Carax. The hermit deserves a feature film of his own. The others should be dropped down the nearest manhole. With Teruyuki Kagawa, Ayako Fujitani, and Denis Lavant (112 min.).
