The last time I watched this movie and the only thing I forgot about it are the names of the characters. Some people are going to say "Why are you giving it 10/10 then?" Its quite simple really, I'm terrible with names and remembering anybody's name is a nice bonus for me.

Six years and some of the scenery still makes me cringe. I mean, hell, what would you think if you were being t... read more

A very good movie

I have always been interested in Japanese animation but, to be honest, the amount of movies is just so massive, I never took the time to really invest myself in this. Anyway, I still had the pleasure to see some amazing ‘mangas’ (that’s how they call them in France but I’m not sure if the name is really accurate) and this flick was definitely one of them. Honestly, I don’t really remembe... read more

Reality of fantasy?

First of all, this movie will confuse you and it will make you think,
it might even screw with your mind because the plot isn't exactly
simple or easy. Those that say that got it all figured out ever since
the beginning are lying. This is a psychological thriller that knows
how to make use of suspense and how to mix reality and fantasy to the
point of confusing t... read more

Mima Kirigoe, a member of a pop-idol group called "CHAM!", decides to quit singing to pursue a career as an actress. Some of her fans are displeased with this decision though, particularly a stalker named Me-Mania. As Mima progresses into her new career, those close to her are violently murdered one by one, and Mima begins to lose the ability to distinguish reality from fantasy.

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: November & Dec. (18 movies items)

"November 30 "What? This isn't true! I didn't write this!" "Of course you didn't. The real Mima is writing this." I heard many great things about Perfect Blue and after seeing it, I have to say that it's quite possibly one of the best anime films I've seen. It's a mix of mystery, thriller and psychological horror and it's all blended exceptionally well. Throughout some of it, I was questioning if some of the stuff that happening was real or if it was all in the main character's head. The anim"

" This is like a Japanese animated Dario Argento movie. Here is blood, nudity and some good memorable murder sequences. It is a better suspense film than most live ones I have seen in the genre and the story is pretty wicked. "

"I was only a teen when I watched it for the first time, and I remember that I didn't like it very much. Well, this is the kind of movie that takes some maturity to be fully apreciated, after all, it's hard to get all the criticism to the media (specially japanese), carrer and machism or notice the homage to The Silence of the Lambs. And there's more, because Satoshi Kon's direction is masterfully done, creating a visually interesting movie and very well edited, making it intriguing, but no conf"

"11.1. (Teatteri/kovalevy) Tämä oli kyllä niin flipannut "tv-kohtaus unen sisällä olevan tv-kohtauksen unen hallusinaation sekoamisessa", että jonkun halvatun Inceptionin vaikeaselkoisuutta vikisevät pullamössöllä ruokitut pitäisi aasinhattu- ja nurkkarangaistuksen kärsittyään istuttaa hieman vilkaisemaan, mistä on kyse. Anime aiheutti myös aitoja tunteita esimerkiksi näytellyn raiskauskohtauksen riipaisevuuden puolesta, minkä ohella päähenkilötytön kokee niin eloisan sympa"
