Critic Reviews of "Papurika"Orlando SentinelAugust 09, 2007
With a conventional invade-dreams/bend-reality plot, it's a bit of a bore.Arizona RepublicJuly 13, 2007
You could sit through the film two or three times to nail down the details of the story, but the film isn't interesting enough to warrant a second look.Houston ChronicleJune 22, 2007
Is it sci-fi? Fantasy? Idiocy? Mostly it's a droning mess -- pretty to look at but confounding to the point where you just don't care any more.Detroit Free PressJune 22, 2007
Especially for fans who understand how movies are put together, Paprika grabs you from the get-go in a series of flowing images and transitions that follow the skewed logic of a dream, jumping from a three-ring circus to a swinging jungle vine.Toronto StarJune 15, 2007
As a showcase of the limitless power of the imagination, Paprika never fails to delight the eye and engage the mind. We are never sure exactly whom we should be cheering for, or even if we're rooting for real characters or their avatars.Globe and MailJune 15, 2007
We're so used to current cautious commercial formulas, it comes as an enjoyable shock to see something like Satoshi Kon's Japanese film, Paprika, which reminds us that with animation, almost anything you can imagine can be represented.Film4September 09, 2008
Though it's not quite up there with the cream of anime feature films, Paprika is a distinctive, quality addition to the genre.eFilmCritic.comFebruary 27, 2008
Plays like the end and the beginning of Japanese cinema: it contradicts itself and contains multitudes.Laramie Movie ScopeOctober 02, 2007
The animation shows brilliant imagination by the filmmakers.Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)September 13, 2007
Its visual collision of mindscapes, films within films and dreams within dreams cascade into a dizzying rush that easily washes away the humdrum dialogue and somewhat sketchy plot.Antagony & EcstasySeptember 12, 2007
Paprika fills me with such overwhelming enthusiasm as to leave me gibbering.
