Paprika (2006, Satoshi Kon)

Pretty bearable anime. I’d been warned that it’s such a mindblowingly twisted movie that most people can’t follow… but it’s not that I couldn’t follow, it’s that I didn’t care enough to. Some of the visuals are neat, but the story and movie are just so uninteresting, I barely made it all the way through. A plot description would take too long, but it involves a lot of scientists and a dream machine that makes some of ’em go hudsucker-proxy nuts and makes others think they can take over the world in dreams. I don’t remember how it ends.
