This mockumentary unravels the tale of how Ronin Suiri Tantai made it to Australian screens back in the late 90 s, retitled as Top Knot Detective, and what really happened behind the scenes of this outrageous show.The original Japanese series was legendary in its home country as being a cultural train-wreck, led by its insane writer/director/star, Takashi Takamoto. The rivalry between Takashi and co-star, Haruto Koike, is just the tipof this conspiratorial iceberg, leading back to Japanese conglomerate Sutaffu, and its CEO, Moritaro (coincidentally, Haruto s father). On-screen he battles robot ninjas & penis monsters off-screen jealousy threatens to demolish his legacy.
Narrated by Des Mangan (Hercules Returns), he introduces us to the sensation of today s cult fan world at Oz Comicon, then takes us right back to the origins of Takashi Takamoto, his hunger for fame, desire to be admired, and the blurry lines between truth and fiction. Through interviews with cast and crew, the mystery of Takashi Takamoto unravels, and we get an insight into the eccentric shows that cult film fans hold so dear.

The hilariously bad (good) use of 90's aesthetic and Japanese pop culture took me fondly back to my child hood. And the so bad its good elements of the 'tv show' within the 'documentary' had me laughing my ass off.
The passion and effort shine through in the tiniest details which make up top knot and the documentary and not mention the superb performances of the cast and crew. I'm not in the least bit surprised that people believe it was a real show from the 90's and I myself wish it was.
I received my multi region blu ray from third window films, a distributor from the UK. Which has commentary from both directors and some fun extras.
