I rarely go for the psychological thrillers but can 100% recommend 'Perfect Blue' by Satoshi Kon.
Shout! Factory were nice and sent a review copy of the upcoming DVD and Blu-Ray and I'm very glad they did.
If like me, you have not seen it, then check it out because it is a must-have for any animation fan's collection.
Just finished watching 'Liz and the Blue Bird' and its a great film.
Visually it's amazing and a sure sign that digital tools can make traditional animation really shine. Musically, you will need your ears tuned since its forms a major element of the plot.
Yet it's the story and the characters that stand out. This is not your average film, and takes its time exploring the incredibly complex entity that is a personal relationship between friends.
This is why I miss @nilaffle on the birdsite
