Slow Motion Video: Tokyo Slo-Mode (VIDEO)

Filmmaker Alex Lee takes (@badassmusketeer) viewers for a slo-mo spin through Tokyo with a creative short set to Flying Lotus featuring Thom Yorke.

In a welcome break from the deluge of time lapse videos -- we do still love you Mr. Time Lapse! –- Lee's shot-from-the-hip cuts of Tokyo's buzzing atmosphere trick the eye into looking at those moments that are sometimes quickly glimpsed but pass in an instant without reflection.

The clip reminds us of Otsuki's playful slow motion video, Running In Cambodia.
