Anything by Satoshi Kon is great !!


Director/Writer Satoshi Kon other hits PERFECT BLUE, TOKYO GODFATHERS,MILLIENNIUM ACTRESS, PARANOID AGENT, and now PAPRIKA. If you like your Anime on the slightly werid side then this is for you. Enough said just buy it and enjoy it just take your phone off the hook and lock the door so you won't be interrupted and watch this ALL the way thru.

P.S. If you haven't seen Satoshi Kon's other movies yet be sure to start with PERFECT BLUE.

An Audiovisual Experience You Shouldn't Miss for the World

by -

The product functioned competently and it was delivered without damage.

As for the content itself, even though I don't fully understand the themes of this movie, as I've only seen it once, this movie goes so much further than Inception did when it comes to depicting dreams, and blurring the lines between what's real and what is the dream. I was absolutely impressed by the fast paced and jaw-dropping editing, the sheer amount of detail in the animation and the creativity in the directing and script. It held my attention all the way through its mystery, its unsettling scenes and the sheer insanity that can result when we tamper with how we perceive the world.

I'm even more curious to see Satoshi Kon's other works, and like the headline says, I give Paprika a glowing endorsement.

My first and still favorite of Satoshi Kon’s works


Confusing me over a decade ago, watching it again recently really made me appreciate it more from the story and visuals. To put it simply, it’s a mesmerizing film that makes you think and ask questions. The story is one I haven’t seen before and it’s so interesting how it plays out. There’s so much you can do with dreams and it just messes with your mind making you think “Is this a dream or reality?” It requires your full attention or else you’ll miss an important detail. This is definitely a film that needs multiple watches or online research to fully understand it. Even after said research, it still puzzles me. The OST is strong and is what I go to when I think of Kon’s music, especially Mediational Field and Parade. It’s hard to explain, but it just adds depth and mystery to this movie. And the animation, especially during the parade sequences, flows nicely and is mesmerizing. It’s a delightful trip for your senses. In all, this is a great and puzzling film that I highly recommend.
