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.
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.
