wow i think a lot of idol fans should probably watch this
my all time fav
I always love how crazy Satoshi Kon's movies get. This one sticks with you
Satoshi Kon has been one of my favorite animator since I was in high school, this film hits so many layers of fear and paranoia it makes me want to look over my shoulder the whole time I watch it. Lovely animation, the man left us too soon.
