Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo

Less a pedantic documentary and more a poetic visual meditation on the Japanese people's peculiar love for bugs, this film is yet further proof that Nippon dwellers are a freakishly fascinating bunch. Beetles and other insects are regarded as sacred in Japan, and there's a huge subculture obsessed with collecting the most beautiful, obscure, unusual (not to mention expensive!) ones on earth. Filmmaker Jessica Oreck is a docent at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, and she devotes a great deal of serious thought to the subject at hand. Haiku, video games, vending machines, pet stores and elaborate cultural festivals are just a few of ways in which beetles are venerated out Asia way, and Oreck unearths some amazing footage to show it all off. 90 minutes (Opens Saturday 7/10)
