Fernando F. Croce
CinePassion

Reality and fantasy leak into each other in short-circuiting jolts in Kon's cosmos

Though it's not quite up there with the cream of anime feature films, Paprika is a distinctive, quality addition to the genre.

Plays like the end and the beginning of Japanese cinema: it contradicts itself and contains multitudes.

The animation shows brilliant imagination by the filmmakers.

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Its visual collision of mindscapes, films within films and dreams within dreams cascade into a dizzying rush that easily washes away the humdrum dialogue and somewhat sketchy plot.

Paprika fills me with such overwhelming enthusiasm as to leave me gibbering.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Offers both eye candy and mind candy -- it's a thoughtful visual treat.

Austin Chronicle

Paprika, while certainly not suitable for kids, manages to capture the childlike, helter-skelter chaos and curiosity of the human mind better than any other animated film.

Entertainment Insiders

Kon is a spectacular filmmaker, although not quite of the same warm, humanistic nature as Hayao Miyazaki.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The mostly 2-D animation is top-notch quality, and it is a fascinating idea.

Some have suggested that taking drugs first would enhance the experience, but really, I don't see how hallucinogens could make the movie any weirder than it is.

Just go with it, drink in the rich and innovative images, and wish that you could remember your own dreams as well as you'll remember "Paprika."

Film Freak Central

This is how post-modernism should always behave: like an acid trip narrated by Derrida.

July 4, 2007

Kon signe son effort le plus ambitieux à ce jour et rejoint les Katsuhiro 'tomo et Hayao Miyazaki dans les rangs des cinéastes d'animation les plus importants de son époque

Kansas City Star

Paprika probably won't win many converts to anime, but the faithful should be satisfied.
