Yesterday I watched a movie, based on a friend’s recommendation. Perfect Blue, a 1997 psychological thriller anime directed by Satoshi Kon. “The film follows a member of a Japanese pop idol group who decides to retire from music to pursue an acting career. As she becomes a victim of stalking and goes deeper and deeper into her first role, she starts to lose her perception of what is real and what is fiction.”
It was amazing.
I’m way into psycho-thrillers, and I’ve been on an anime movie streak too (just watched The Boy and the Beast and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time this past week, and they were good too).
I think I’m going to watch more of Kon’s films that he’s written/directed, because he certainly knocked it out of the park with Perfect Blue. I need to catch up on all the films that I’ve missed, or hadn’t heard about.
My question is: What’s a movie from your past that you think people should see?
