Film: Paprika

Paprika is a very bizarre Japanese film. There's a dream detective called Paprika who is the dream avatar of a female scientist working on a project to create a headset that allows dreams to be interacted with and stored. The handsets are stolen and it becomes apparent is trying to merge everyone's dreams into a single super dream that'll take over the world.

Being dreams the animators have free reign to create an anime visual overload which we do get with a parade of toys, tinkerbell, monkey and all sorts of nonsense going on.

The story is ok to follow, it's just weird.

The film came out in 2006 so might not be an easy one to see on the big screen, but do try to get to it should it come your way.
