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.

My biggest disappointments in entertainment (117 tv items)

"Despite the praise its receives, Paprika is more infamous than famous, often referred as the worst movie Satoshi Kon has ever done and a lesser Inception (despite coming out first). I didn't watch the latter so I can't talk about that, but the first claim is 100% right to me. Despite the wonderful visuals, the soundtrack, the premise, the interesting themes, and the same anti-escapism messages this director always put in his works, the tone is uneven, the characters have no personal investment i"
