Perfect Blue review: Anime I Like 5

Perfect Blue showcased that Kon loved blurring the lines of reality.

When anime can break out into new venues to target the mental underpinnings of characters, then I’m floored. That doesn’t happen a lot, as most anime goes for shock or grandeur. Neither have much appeal to me if they’re not earned. I really don’t care how many characters turn their daughters into dogs. It has to make sense within the narrative.

Much has been made of how Aronofsky lifted shots and material from the story for later efforts on Requiem for a Dream and Black Swan. However, both work independently of each other. A young woman losing control over her career and mind isn’t the newest thing. But, damn…it’s just so fascinating to watch.
