Perfect Blue

"A twisted, disturbing and wholly involving psychological thriller" – Jack Matthews, New York Daily News

"Excuse me, who are you?" Rising pop star Mima has quit singing to pursue a career as an actress and model, but her fans aren't ready to see her go. Encouraged by her managers, Mima takes on a recurring role on a popular TV show, when suddenly her handlers and collaborators begin turning up murdered. Harboring feelings of guilt and haunted by visions of her former self, Mima's reality and fantasy meld into a frenzied paranoia. As her stalker closes in, in person and online, the threat he poses is more real than even Mima knows.

The debut film from legendary director Satoshi Kon (Paprika) has frequently been hailed as one of the most important animated films of all time – an intense psychological thriller for the social media era.

Tokyo Godfathers

"With its masterful grasp of comedy, pathos, social commentary and mystical weirdness, Tokyo Godfathers takes anime to a whole new level." – Ken Eisner, Variety

In modern-day Tokyo, three homeless people's lives are changed forever when they discover a baby girl at a garbage dump on Christmas Eve. As the New Year fast approaches, these three forgotten members of society band together to solve the mystery of the abandoned child and the fate of her parents. Along the way, encounters with seemingly unrelated events and people force them to confront their own haunted pasts, as they learn to face their future, together.

Heartbreaking, hilarious and highly original, Tokyo Godfathers is a humanist masterpiece from the legendary director Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Perfect Blue), and a tale of hope and redemption in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

Millennium Actress

GORGEOUS NEW RESTORATION!

Satoshi Kon's masterful follow-up to Perfect Blue traces the career of a legendary actress, Chiyoko Fujiwara, as seen through the eyes of documentary filmmakers. Though Chiyoko has withdrawn into retirement, filmmaker Genya Tachibana receives the rare opportunity to interview her about her life. When he gives the actress a token from her past, Tachibana and his cameraman Ida are thrust into Chiyoko's memories, reliving the key moments of her life and uncovering the truth behind her fabled career. This timeless tale of passion bends reality and delivers emotion in a way only Satoshi Kon could.
