Paprika

I'm surprised no one here has mentioned Satoshi Kon's Paprika yet. It's coming out on the 25th and it looks promising.

Yeah, Satoshi Kon's an underappreciated genius. Looks like he and madhouse have made another disturbing masterpiece. Though I've read Kon's said after Paprika he'd like to move on and make movies that don't have to do with blurring fantasy and reality anymore. He wants to make an atypical :wink: children's film.

Earlier, the site was showing a clip of the credit intro and it was fun stuff. It now can be seen on youtube:

I've never seen Perfect Blue. I've read some mixed reviews about it. Would you recommend it?

It reminded me a little of perfect blue's look too.

I didn't know about this. Thanks for the heads up. Looks cool.

I've been eagerly waiting for Paprika to come out. Kon's Millenium Actress may be my absolute favourite film.

I just saw this. It was one of the most visually amazing movies I've ever seen but for some reason, I couldn't get that attached to the plot or the characters. Not enough emotional involvement for me. Figuring out who was the mastermind was a little predictable. Whenever they pulled the reality is actually fantasy trick, it was unsurprising cause I was expecting stuff like that. One of the love subplots was kind of out of left field. The ending was kind of ho hum. The most developed character was the cop. I like the film references like the Kurosawa impersonation. I want to see "Dreaming Kids".

I wonder if there will be any showings in LA? I'm such a huge fan of his films... I really want to see it on the big screen.
