Perfect Blue

Director: Satoshi Kon

Released: 1997

An anime film for adults that is neither Akira nor hentai, ‘Perfect Blue’ follows a woman as she quits her pop music career to persue acting, only for a mysterious obsessed fan to begin stalking her. What follows is a surreal nightmare as she spirals into insanity.

Satoshi Kon may have been the most talented anime director before his early death, and this along with ‘Paprika’ are among the best things the anime industry has produced.
