I realy enjoyed the story behind this one, it was realy refreshing to everything else i have been watching recently. I allready had a vague idea as to what it was about, because someone had told me about it, but actualy watching it realy showed me why my friend liked it. This is a great movie for anyone who enjoys pshycological thrillers. I give it a 9.5/10

I really like stories that make use of characters being unable to distinguish between dreams and reality, and would agree that it's a major, if not the main, strength of Perfect Blue.

It worked well in one of my favourite episodes of Futurama, too.

there are no good new movies(5cmps, tpptoed, paprika, etc.). they just look good, the story is either damn slowly progressing and the kind of love stories i really really hate or the story just sucks.

perfect blue looks great and the plot is just tooo awesome. i really really like madhouse older movies(pb, millennium actress, etc.). they look truly great and have a over the top storyline!

P.S. why is the movie called "Perfect Blue". i couldnt figure this one out :)

Because the original novel that I don't know (except that it's different) was called that

Very helpful.

Think I figured it out, though. The horror of international titles. Made worse by abbreviation. Next time just write Kumo no mukou.

Didn't watch anything by Shinkai yet. Too depressing.

Know Tekkon kinkreet?

I liked it although at the end I was still confused about what exactly was a dream, what was an acting job and what was reality.

I enjoyed it, but thought it was mostly pretentious garbage that was incredibly hyped.
