Paprika

Today I saw the most amazingly original film I have seen in a long time, certainly the most original cartoon: Paprika, a Japanese anime that goes so far beyond what I ever imagined could be the limits of the genre. Astounding. A daring science fiction trip into the psychology of dreams. It is less realistic and humane that Wim Wenders classic Until the End of the World which also deals with dream machines, but as a cartoon it beats most records of weirdness, and I have seen a few, such as Naked Lunch or Being John Malkovich or Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Very much worth watching, if you feel in control enough to rock your psychological boat.

A film that can easily be seen twice.
