It's now a world were not even one's dreams are able to offer sanctuary from the real world. A device, the DC Mini, has been invented that allows its user to invade the dreams of others. And naturally complications do arise, else there wouldn't be much point to this movie. The premise I've just described sounds something like a no-brainer for a Satoshi Kon film, given his fondness for playing around with the minds of his viewers.

True to his style, there were many times when I thought an event was playing out in the real world, only for a parade of toys and sundry household appliances to show otherwise. All of this served once again as a warning not to second guess the man and just take things as they come. What came as a surprise were the moments in which the director wandered into territory usually reserved for Mamoru Oshii in the scenes where characters discuss the moral implications not only of the DC Mini, but also of the rampant dehumanising advance of technology as a whole. After all, what channels of exploitation are possible if another party has access to your dreams?

I watched Paprika on Blu-Ray after having seen it on dvd. In truth I didn't really expect that big a jump in AV quality over the dvd version. Silly me, how little did I know. Blu-Ray and its hi-def content revealed more scene details, especially in the backgrounds in, as well as in the crowded moments (the circus crowd and the techno geeks' studies especially). Then there's the matter of uncompressed Japanese 5.1 audio. Loud, clear and composed uncompressed Japanese 5.1 audio to be exact...

This was a very good anime film. I expected nothing more from the director Satonshi Kon, who directed Perfect Blue and Tokyo Godfather.
