Review of Perfect Blue (1997)

Moving picture, 81 minutes

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?

Mindbending metafictive thriller by Kon Satoshi. A dissolving psychological piece that really comes together in the end.
