six years

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.

"Perfect Blue is the 1992 Argento he never had the skill to make. It's the downright picture perfect problematic fave, a film simultaneously as sleazy, unkind and nasty as it is empathetic and righteously condemning. If it applied that empathy to all regions, I wouldn't be as grossed out by it post-viewing, but even as it is, I can totally get behind this level of sleazy psycho-sexual and physical violence executed with an over-the-top style.

“Perfect blue es una de esas películas que al igual que otros trabajos de su director, Satoshi Kon, dan mucho de qué hablar. Temáticamente hablando posee un sin número de tópicos a los que le puedes dar distintas lecturas e interpretaciones que lo hacen un anime con pocos equivalentes en su medio o el cine, y aquellas obras con las que se le podría comparar o son del mismo creador o están fuertemente inspiradas en ella. Si hablamos de desde un punto de vista visual y productivo, es asombroso como es que con los escombros de presupuesto de un intento fallido de hacer un live action de la historia se lograse semejante nivel de calidad visual. Y si la viésemos desde un punto de vista histórico es la razón por la que Madhouse sería coronado como el rey de las casas productoras del an” read more

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (216 movies items)

"4.8 (uusintakatselu) Konin paras, ylivoimaisesti. Häiriintynyt sukellusmatka hulluuden partaalla olevan ex-poptähti Miman mieleen on toisellakin katselukerralla ahdistavaa seurattavaa. Samalla kuvataan myös sitä, miten sairaalloisesti fanikunta kohtelee idoliaan, jonka he näkevät enemmän avatarina kuin ihmisenä. Loppuun lisätty, päälleliimatun oloinen epilogi, joka avaa viimeisetkin solmut, ei pilaa kokonaisuutta, mutta on ratkaisu, jota Lynchin fanit eivät välttämättä arvosta."
