“Tokyo Vice” day at MovieNation

The review embargo for this HBO Max series about an American reporter covering the Japanese mob for a Japanese newspaper is Monday afternoon.

But before one writes the review of Ansel Elgort’s series set in the Japanese underworld, one must immerse oneself in it. Half a dozen episodes, each an hour long.

I don’t review a lot of series, as they’re time consuming, and reviews of series have an extremely limited shelf life, as in nobody reads them a month after they’ve been published.

But I love mob movies, love Japanese films, love Japanese mob movies.

So Sunday is “Tokyo Vice” day. Michael Mann directed the series premiere, and here we go.
