#26: Paprika (2006)

Director: Satoshi Kon
Screenplay: Seishi Minakam and Satoshi Kon
Based on a novel by Yasutaka Tsutsui
Voice Cast: Megumi Hayashibara (as Doctor Atsuko Chiba/Paprika); Tōru Furuya (as Doctor Kōsaku Tokita); Tōru Emori (as Doctor Seijirō Inui); Katsunosuke Hori (as Doctor Toratarō Shima); Akio Ōtsuka (as Detective Toshimi Konakawa); Kōichi Yamadera (as Doctor Morio Osanai)

This would've been a difficult task - covering an anime by the late Satoshi Kon and explaining my admiration for him - regardless of which of his small filmography I choose, but it does also mean I got to revisit this film again and see why I admire him like so many do. Paprika is the one in his career which is the "flawed" film of his filmography, but you'll also see why I love it if you follow the link to the full review HERE.
