“In the 11 years since its release, PAPRIKA, from Perfect Blue director Satoshi Kon, has garnered cult status as an ambitious sci-fi oddity. Not just that, but it’s a mind-blowing swan song for the talented director who died in 2010.
“As a dream thriller about corporate sabotage, thievery, mistaken-identity, and idea construction it’s hard not to notice an influence on Christopher Nolan’s Inception. Whilst that film has its charms and thrills PAPRIKA blows it out the park in approach to the fertile grounds of dreams and film theory.” – Starburst Magazine (2017)
