Ratings & Reviews
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.
The One to Watch
A wonderful story that ignites your imagination. The opening is beautiful and the ending will make you feel good all over.
An Audiovisual Experience You Shouldn't Miss for the World

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.
