From Gay Essential
Imri Khan is front and centre in the Israeli-Berliner director Lior Shamriz’s 2007 film, Japan Japan. The protagonist, who is played by the actor of the same name, is an introspective young man who is refining his dream of moving to Japan from Tel Aviv, and the audience bears witness to the series of encounters that shifts his international whims.
“The restless, mini-DV-camera-shot visual style of Lior Shamriz’s semi-improvised fiction matches the wanderlust of its twentysomething gay hero, and its mood of displacement enhances the explicit thesis that escaping from your home (or culture) seldom means you can leave it behind.”
— Bill Weber, Slant Magazine
