Ratings & Reviews
Top 10 feature animes IMO!
by Samuel Bandeira
Not only one of the best animes I've ever seen, this is one of the best Psychological Thrillers I've ever seen. Kon Satoshi at his best! Be ready to be shocked, be ready to be surprised... Would maybe say "not suitable for children", but heck, let them know what's good from an early age!
A classic that belongs on any collector's shelf.

I may be predisposed to liking this film due to my love of the 90s anime art style, but this film is amazing. The plot is absolutely bonkers and it definitely leaves you wondering what you just watched. The acting is done very well and the music is superb, as to be expected from a Satoshi Kon film.
It does get extremely dark towards the end, so be warned, but this film is well worth a watch if you are looking for a fantastic film that will leave you scratching your head for the rest of the evening.
A really good movie for a really good price

I remember when I first watched this movie I really enjoyed it and after that I just knew I had to have this in my collection. Perfect blue is such a great movie and the DVD itself is very nice. It contains the Blu-ray and the regular DVD along with background art in the case. It's a pretty good price for a movie that contains both Blu-ray and DVD. I will say I thought the menu screen would be different with the Blu-ray but it's actually the same as the DVD. But overall I highly recommend buying this amazing and suspenseful film.
One of the Late Satoshi Kon's Best Works
by SonGokusukeUrameshi -
You know that an Anime Film is outstanding when Hollywood plagiarizes it (Cough Cough "Black Swan"). Thus, Perfect Blue is a Perfect Anime Film! This film boasts classic animation, which I am assuming is mostly if not entirely hand drawn, paired with a fantastic plot and directing. This is a thriller from the late great Satoshi Kon that will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time. The Blu-Ray quality is great and I highly recommend purchasing this!
"Excuse me, who are you?"
After quitting her trio, a former pop singer decides to get into acting, but is required to perform scenes which make her gradually uncomfortable. Matters get even worse when her accomplices start getting bumped off, and a mysterious psycho starts stalking her. Satoshi Kon's debut film is an uncompromisingly dark picture, with flashes of nasty sequences in places. However, it also provides a smart commentary on the relationship between artists, agencies, and fans. Be warned, though, it DOES get very trippy and confusing at times, but that's the point: PERFECT BLUE is meant to make you feel unstable. It's gratifying to have this classic back in print again, thanks to the folks at GKIDS. That they retain the solid dub done by AniMaze from the 90s is a nice bonus.
