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

One fine anime!

“I am a fan of anime and of animation, and I was very taken with Perfect Blue. I would have liked it to have lasted longer perhaps, that way more care could have gone into the ending which felt rather weak and rushed. But as a debut of a talented and interesting director, it is a fine anime not just of its genre but overall too.

The animation is very good, while the backgrounds flow well and are wonderfully ethereal, the colours are well shaded and the characters look great without being too generic, it is the clever visual flourishes that really elevate. Another strong asset is the story, it is well paced but also in its tone it is wonderfully surrealistic and its ideas are interestingly presented.

The music is fine too with some moments of beauty and some of it haunted” read more

"La introspección psicológica que esta película le da a su protagonista es increíble, al igual que su dirección y mensajes, no me termina de convencer ciertos aspectos sobre su plausibilidad pero sigue siendo una extraordinaria película."

"4.6. Toinen katselukerta. Kuinka raikas uudelleenkatselu olikaan, sillä niin vähän elokuvasta yhdeksän vuoden jälkeen muistin. Kerronnaltaan niin hieno ja visuaaliselta tyyliltään niin lumoava."

Movie But Anime (30 movies items)

"It is well directed more than I would ever hope for. The movie is very terrifying and psychological. It exhibits really scary feelings and thoughts. How a person can lose himself and how a person can be obsessed with one version of someone else. It is a story about a girl who leaves pop idol life to be an actress and loses herself on the way and a stalker who is just a lunatic beyond comprehension. It is a great movie but I couldn't rate it more than 3 stars because it was too much for me. "

" Date: 10/25/2020 Viewed: Blu-ray Re-Watch Note: Perfect Blue is probably my favorite animated movie of all time next to Ninja Scroll (1993) and Waking Life (2001) in my opinion. Everything about this movie is breath-taking from start to finish. I remember when the movie came out on VHS in 1999, but I never saw it at the time. It was not until I was 16 or 17 when I finally saw the movie and I end up loving it. After watching it again on blu-ray, this movie is still amazing. Perfect Blue is pr"
