35mm Print! Staff Pick! Chosen by Andrew. "In the 11 years since its release, PAPRIKA, from Perfect Blue director Satoshi Kon, has garnered cult status as an ambitious sci-fi oddity. Not just that, but it's a mind-blowing swan song for the talented director who died in 2010. "The film takes place in a relatively near-future Japan where a revolutionary experimental device called the DC Mini allows users to interact with their dreams and the dreams of others. As a troubled detective receives illegal in-dream therapy from a mysterious figure known as Paprika, the DC Mini's untapped power threatens to envelop the entire world in a living lucid dream where reality and fantasy become indistinguishable.
