Selected J-Rock media have been able to see We Are X at official preview screenings. Please check out the reviews!




“A roller coaster ride of emotions and a spectacular inside look at the band… props to director Stephen Kijak for capturing the essence of X JAPAN so brilliantly.”

JaME: http://www.jame-world.com/us/articles-122955-x-japan-quot-we-are-x-quot-film-review.html


“Beautiful HD footage… an extravagant display. ‘We Are X’ masterfully introduces X Japan to the world.”

VKH Press: http://www.vkh-press.com/2016/09/review-x-japans-visually-shocking.html


“Like everything X Japan, ‘We Are X’ is fast-paced, riveting, loud and intensely visual — a must see for X Japan fans.”

Shattered Tranquility: http://shattered-tranquility.net/index.php/09/24/review-we-are-x-the-dark-and-dynamic-documentary-all-about-x-japan/


"For people experiencing this world for the first time, I asked Yoshiki what he wanted them to walk away with after watching the movie. He says he hopes it helps people learn to overcome anything."

“…beautifully crafted by Director Stephen Kijak …jaw dropping live scenes”

I finally saw the doc yesterday (found it not on a site that not called jpopsuki) and I must say it's ok. It's not that great I thought it would be.

And am I honest the only new thing I learned about X was that Hide picked some bones out of Yoshiki's fish in restaurant and that Hide talked to Yoshiki about the last live what they could do if the already brainwashed Toshi say something inappropriate.
Oh, and that thing where they were in L.A. and a junk come along and asked Hide and Yoshiki if they have any X (XTC) and Yoshiki replied "We are X!".  ;D

But I didn't want to say that it's not worth to watch it. It's really ok, but I think if you are new to X and don't read the biography of Toshi and Yoshiki and don't really know the history and the music of the band, than you will not get really into it (sorry, my english is not that good. I really can't say what I want to say). The documentation is to short for this.
And also it's all about Yoshiki. A bit from Toshi. But I really want to know how Pata joined X and where they met Hide...

(I think it's also available on a relatively unknown social media website, but it's shit quality, I have a migraine, and I want the full experience, dammit...) :P
