Aro Favourite Perfect Blue


Japan 1997, 90 minutes
Dir. Satoshi Kon
In Japanese with English subtitles
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Cult, Suspense/Crime / Animation, Anime

Topics: Showbiz, Computers & Tech.


Aroview: Coherent and mature product of Japanese 'anime' is an unsettling psycho-drama about a burnt-out teen pop idol, simultaneously plagued by an internet stalker and a strange identity crisis after taking a part in a controversial TV crime show.

Exposes a seamier side of Japanese media and pop culture while delivering a hyper-real woman-in-peril thriller that could have just as easily made a superior live-action film.
