Perfect Blue (1997) IMDb

Categorization

Mindbending metafictive thriller by Kon Satoshi.

Subject

A minor pop star makes an economically correct switch to the seedier side of the acting business. This doesn't please a particular stalker, and success is uncertain. Wasn't it better to be an innocent idol?

Commentary

A dissolving psychological piece that really comes together in the end. Aronofsky bought the rights to be able to copy a scene from this into his Requiem for a Dream (2000).
