what does /a/ think of Perfect Blue? I have just finished, and I really enjoyed it! I am very curious as I don't frequent /a/.
>>
>>159828756
Satoshi Kon's best work, although Tokyo Godfathers comes close.
>>
>>159828917
I will definitely watch Tokyo Godfathers next!
>>
>>159828756
My favorite movie ever. You should absolutely watch Millennium Actress now. It has the same structure as Perfect Blue and many people say it's the better film. I don't exactly agree with that opinion, but it's certainly very respectable.
>>
It's a movie like Requiem for a Dream to me. You watch it, it's a great film but it's that messed you probably won't watch it again (or for awhile).

My gripe is that the ending seemed a bit farfetched and random, and her disorder seemed fixed magically. The animation really works for it though, the antagonist really made my skin crawl.

But it did teach me that anyone who is fat and/or ugly is probably a serial killer.

>her disorder seemed fixed magically
Mima's hallucinations came about due to immense stress from Rumi's psychological terror. By the end of the film, Rumi is in an asylum so Mima's source of stress is gone. So her psychotic breakdown is relieved. Or is it? In the very last shot she says "No, I am real" while looking through a mirror. Throughout the film, mirrors have been used to show her psychosis so the question of if Mima cured or not is delightfully ambiguous.

>>159829452
when she looks in to the Car's mirror, really set the ending for me.

>>159828991
Don't bother watching Paprika.
>>
>>159829569
yea, I agree that Paprika is inferior to both Perfect Blue and Millennium Actress
>>
>>159828756
Kon's magnum opus, he could never top it.
>>
>>159829715
And he never will

I feel like it wasn't though, it's kind of vague and makes you wonder how she's getting through her life now.
>>
What's it with all the threads about this lately. Did one of those dumb youtubers made a video about it or something?
>>
>>159829943
This is the first one I've seen, anon. Maybe you're just noticing it now.
>>
>>159829943
Probably.

Kon's movies are slowly becoming a sort of magnet or autistic shitheads who only specifically digests anime that appeals to their intellect or some shit. Perfect Blue is ambiguous enough and is filled to the brim with clever shots and direction that it's almost impossible to anime intellects to ignore it.

I would say give it a couple more years before people start to shit on Kon. All it takes is one autistic shitlord trying to stuff Kon movies down everyone else's throat.
>>
>>159830119
I doubt most of /a/ has even seen any Kon films and I doubt future /a/ will either.
>>
>>159830119
>All it takes is one autistic shitlord trying to stuff Kon movies down everyone else's throat.
Yeah that's how it usually happens huh. At least it's nearly impossible to waifufag Kon's stuff.
>>

I don't know what you talking about mate, Mima is a top-tier waifu. Shame no one else realized this and made more fan-art of her
>>
>>159829569
Faggot, its still better than 95% of anime movies. Saying it's not worth watching is like saying the hateful eight isn't worth watching because django exists
>>
>>159828756
Shitty ripoff of Black Swan

If you loved PB then go watch millennium actress immediately. I can guarantee you'll absolutely love it.
>>
>>159831955
that was clearly a joke you retarded cellphone teen
>>
No moe, no watch

this stuff is ruining anime by pretending to be something that you take seriously.
>>
>>159831993
Millennium actress uses a lot of the same match cuts and stylistic framing devices, but it's very different.

Do yourself a favor and watch EVERYTHING that Satoshi Kon did.

It's over
>>
>>159828991
Watch it at Christmas
>>
>>159829943
/a/ has always talking about Kon (at least since he died)

what are you on about?
>>
>>159832054
you know nothing about moe
>>
Shit, because Satoshi Kon is wannabe second hand Kubric. He doesnt have a single good movie.

Its always bad idea letting animators direct. His live action movies expose his shallow nature even more.
>>
I've been spoiled the ending a few years back.
And it's so cliche it's unforgettable.
Is it still worth it?
>>
>>159837138
The main reason Kon is so impressive was his understanding of the animated medium. Obviously there would be little of his style and ability visible in another one.
Stop treating animation the same as film, they are inherently different and process involved in their creation is also very different.
>>
>>159828756
Good movie, but EXTREMELY overrated, just like everything Kon did.
>>
PB > Paprika > MA > TG
>>
>>159828917
I think I'd probably go Millennium Actress, Magnetic Rose, Perfect Blue as a very close top 3
>>
>>159828756
Millennium Actress > Tokyo Godfathers > Perfect Blue > Paprika
>>
>>159837265
>getting spoiled about the ending to Perfect Blue ruins the movie

No, it doesn't. You can know the fucking twist and still enjoy the movie. Unless you're going to be anal about it throughout the entire movie then yes, you just ruined your own experience.

How come some people think a movie is suddenly ruined for them when the ending is told to them? This is like telling someone Tom Hanks gets off the island in Cast Away and people assuming that the movie is ruined now because they now know Tom Hanks escapes the island.
>>
>>159837265
Fun fact, people enjoy stories more if they are spoiled for them.
>>
>>159841590
Does that not have to do with being able to spot foreshadowing and such, as you would when you re-watch it?
>>
>>159841863
No. People just seem to rate stories higher if they have read short synopsis of the entire plot first.

>le creepy evil otaku XD
WOW so fucking deep
This is one of the heights of the medium
>>
cutest fattie
>>
Saw it in the cinema and thought it was great. That said its so intense I'm not sure I'd watch it again.
>>
>>159829569
Ignore this faggot. Even if it's not as good as the others it's still great, and the visuals are worth it alone.
