Rating:
R
Perfect Blue is an animated Japanese psychological thriller about a young pop icon whose fans overreact when she switches careers. The world is totally in the hands of young Mima (Junko Iwao), the young lead singer of female Japanese pop sensation Cham. The group is at the peak of their popularity, with fans galore, which makes the news that Mima is giving up music to become an actress quite a pill for her many her fans to swallow. The young star quickly learns just how hard it will be for one fan in particular when she starts to receive strange and intimidating phone calls, calling her a traitor. But Mima goes through with the transition, jumping right into the action on her new job with a heated rape scene. Life on the set of her very adult new television show seems to be working out just fine, but when fellow cast members are murdered, Mema begins losing her grip on reality, drifting into a paranoid state that blurs the lines between reality and fiction. With nothing as it seems, only time will tell if the young pop star turned actress will recover to tell about the biggest decision of her life. Satoshi Kon directs this striking departure for the world of anime, putting society's obsession with fame on center stage.moreless
