Satoshi Kon was a master director and creator, known primarily for his contributions to the animated film landscape. Several of his works have been used as inspiration for more mainstream western movies like Inception, Black Swan, and many others. His surreal and tension filled movies pull on the threads of reality and twist what the audience believes to be real into doubt and uncertainty. Kon’s Perfect Blue is an incredible story with harsh imagery and unpleasant themes that combine to create a dark and twisted depiction of fame and fandom.
Perfect Blue is available to stream on Prime Video ($).
