Tokyo Pop (1988)

Posted in film, media by mafiahunt on May 30, 2010

Tokyo Pop is one of my favorite movies of my teen hood. The story is about a new-wave-comme-punk  bleached blond Wendy, who moves to Tokyo to try to make it as a “rock star”. She then falls in love with a Japanese rocker boy and they become pop stars. There are some great fashions (Wendy’s outfits pretty much rule) and scenery of Tokyo, to top it off X-japan has a cameo. Overall its a fun movie and feeds my obsession with 1980s Japan.

I can’t find a DVD copy of this movie or a torrent. If you have any information how to get a hold, please pass it along. I’d even love a VHS copy. Thus, is why there are no screen shots in this post.
