"That's right, keep running. There are no boundaries to dreams. The spirit will be freed from the constraints of the body... and gain limitless freedom. Including me! I will also be free!"

When a machine that allows therapists to enter their patient's dreams is stolen, all hell breaks loose. Only a young female therapist can stop it: Paprika.

Fantastic movie with amazing music and incredible visuals. The story is interesting enough and the characters are pretty well flushed out... until the end. The end is a huge letdown.

I've been curious about this film ever since I overheard my peers dub Inception as a clone of it. While Inception's big lie (the PASIV device) might have been inspired by Paprika (which shares a similar, if not identical, lie), these films are hugely different in their content and meaning. To dismiss either as a duplicate of the other is unjustified and frankly, calls into question the viewer that... read more

A machine allows therapists to enter patients' dreams. When it's stolen, all hell breaks loose, and only a woman therapist (nicknamed "Paprika") seems able to stop it.

Movie Reviews (1601-1650) (50 movies items)

" Intriguing mix of various themes and ideas are put into one huge dream of surreal imagery and insane fantasy. It has some scenes that borders on sexual perversity but it manage to get away with it. The story challenges the mind and forces one to think and actually analyze what happens which is hard since there is a lot happening. The characters though could have been better developed with especially the villain coming out as an obvious one. The ending climax also wimpers out the story together "
