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

"Me vi las películas de Satoshi Kon una tras otra para conocer si es tan buen director como se le reconoce. Empezando por Perfect Blue esta tiene una animación y dirección increíbles, que muestra la cruda realidad la industria del entretenimiento de principio a fin. El cambio de ritmo a partir de la segunda mitad choca un poco pero va acorde con la presión psicológica que sufre la protagonista. En fin, es una gran película."

"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"

El Zumbador posted a review 1 year, 1 month ago

“Satoshi Kon tenía una gran idea acerca de la sociedad y como esta decaía con el pasar del tiempo en lugar de progresar como debería.

He aquí su obra cúlmine, Perfect Blue, una historia que da un garrotazo fuerte a la sociedad japonesa, crítica que perfectamente serviría aún más para estos tiempos.

Primero debemos saber de que va la historia; trata de una idol que decide pasarse al mundo de la actuación porque según ella le permitirá triunfar más en su carrera como artista, pero en el camino se va topando con los distintos pesares que se encuentran comúnmente en el medio.

Vemos en la película como Mima debe darse cuenta lo mal que hace la fama cuando esta se masifica, el como los fans se llegan a obsesionar con ella al punto de seguirla en todo l” read more
