Not Bad

by -

I thought I would give this a try after Perfect Blue since its from the same creator but I guess this one was not my cup of tea but still not a bad film so still worth a shot.

5 star rating out of 5

Simply Unforgettable


Satoshi Kon's Paprika is a phenomenal tour de force. In traditional Kon fashion, Paprika demonstrates an artists excellent craftsmanship in storytelling, stitched together with editing techniques that only the animated medium is capable of withstanding.

The story has thrilling psychological elements woven throughout the narrative and would go on to help inspire Christopher Nolans, Inception. Truly, a fascinating peak into the beautiful imagination of one of anime's greatest storytellers as audiences explore the human psyche in this compelling, thought provoking masterpiece.

Whether you are familiar with Satoshi Kon or you have yet to experience his works, Paprika is a must have, especially for those who revel in the art and technique of animation and filmmaking.

Bizarre, to be sure, but thrilling and absolutely dazzling.


Satoshi Kon's fourth and final film is a thrilling roller coaster ride through psychedelically stunning, gorgeous animated visuals. The plot is a little tricky to describe, but it's basically about a device which allows people to travel through dreams (bear with me) and view them on a computer. It'll take more than one viewing of this movie to untangle the puzzle of its storyline, but frankly, it's worth it. If the film bears resemblances to Christopher Nolan's Inception, it's only a compliment. Mr. Kon is sorely missed by many, but this film was a glorious one to go out on. That it's still great today is a testament to this genius' talent. The film looks especially vibrant in High-Definition, and it features a solid English dub featuring good performances by Cindy Robinson and Paul St. Peter. But the best extras are the interviews with Mr. Kon and the author of the book it's based on. That makes this release a must-have for sure.
