Freak of the Week: Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo

by Tony Nigro

I know that from the title you’re thinking, “Not more zany Japanese pop culture!”  But I swear that Jessica Oreck’s Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo isn’t like Machine Girl or Banana Street.  It’s a documentary.  Seriously.  And it’s about bugs.

But of course it’s not just about bugs.  You notice those shots of crowded Tokyo streets?  You ever rushed around crowded streets yourself?  You ever see an ant farm?  Beetle Queen is about people, too.
