do you remember, /a/?

His stuff was never successful, except with the arthouse crowd and us westerners. He wouldn't have saved anything, as otaku don't recognize quality at all.

>>113434006
Unfortunately this. This whole industry is sustained by cunts who went let the mediums potential be reached.

Robbed from the motherfucking grave. Just one more reason to not give whorelywood any of my money.

Aronofsky never made a secret of ripping of Kon(in Fact he bought the rights for Perfect Blue so he could legally copy some visuals) and every film nerd who cares already knows it.
>>
>>113434272
Darren Aronofsky is a hack. What else haven't we heard?

At least Nolan freely admitted that Paprika was an inspiration for Inception.
>>
>>113434484
and it worked out well, because while there were similarities in the "dream sharing," the rest of the film was able to stand on its own merits.
>>
>>113434565
True. Both are pretty legendary directors. Just wish that both were still around making awesome shit for us to watch.
>>
>>113434006
Where do directors like Satoshi Kon and Mamoru Oshii get the money to keep on making these types of movies? I mean, has even one of them turned a profit?
>>
>>113434484
Damn right. Also, not a Jew. Coincidence? I think not.
>>
>>113434272

Haven't watched Perfect Blue but from the description it sounds like he ripped off Stephen King first

Why does this scare me so much?
>>
>>113434609


Pretty good question. Both are revered by the arthouse crowd and hardcore film nerds(don't forget: Tokyo Godfathers was an Oscar Nominee back then) and those guys tend to be massive buyfags. Both of them always got much love and support from the west.

After the first people realized the similarities between Paprika and Inception, Kon wrote a blog post about how almost every work of art is influenced by an earlier one.Tokyo Godfathers is also based on the Three Godfathers(like hundreds of other movies). In the end, the execution is the important thing.

>>113433770
Who else do we have that even rivals him anymore? Miyazaki? Oshii I guess? ABe has some impressive work too but he's more of an animator/artist than a director, and afaik he's been on hiatus for years now.

It really kind of depresses me how slim the stock is of directors and artists like him in the industry. In all honestly the biggest problem with the anime industry, creatively speaking, is the severe lack of quality writers and directors of comparable caliber.
>>
>>113435105
Actually more Alfred Hitchcock than Stephen King. I've always thought Perfect Blue was a movie Hitchcock would have made if he'd been a Japanese animator rather than British.

This.

That's probably a good thing.

>P-Model will never make another album
>>
>>113438671
Didn't he made another P-Model band where he does everything by himself? I haven't listened to it yet.
>>
>>113434395
No, in an interview he said that Black Swan was never inspired in any way by Perfect Blue, even though he said there were some similarities. Fucking bullshit.
>>
>>113438741
Yeah, he's done a couple albums himself as "Kaku P-Model". It's basically just P-Model in name only, though - he's the only one in it.
>>
>>113433770
Millenium Actress>Perfect Blue>Paprika>Tokyo Godfathers>Paranoia Agent

Still all of them would outclass almost all current modern anime

Perfect Blue>Paranoia Agent>Paprika>Tokyo Godfathers>Millenium Actress.

>>113438876
It's quite good stuff though

>>113438834
Of course he did. It doesn't change the fact.
