Paprika (Kon, 2007)


Paprika works best consuming the vast overlapping dreamscapes of its characters’ minds, layering deep into past traumas, guilt, and cinematic imagery. But while the film hypnotically builds a visual scheme in relation to visceral instinct and motivation, the characters themselves never quite compliment Kon’s kaleidoscope of iconography. Ultimately, the hollow nature of the end result outweighs the ambitious and fantastic effort by the filmmakers toward realizing a fusion between technology and dreams.
