A device intended as a tool to allow therapists to enter their patient's dreams, soon finds itself in the hands of 'sleep terrorists,' opening up a nightmarish world where minds are invaded and wills changed (not unlike Nolan's Inception several years later). The last film from Satoshi Kon (who died four years after its release), Paprika is visually stunning and makes us only dream what anime's equivalent of David Lynch might have gone on to make next.
