Easily one of the better anime films I've watched, but also one of the most uninteresting and unenjoyable.
Perfect Blue commits the only sin that irks me in film: rape. Immediately, I am both irritated and extremely uncomfortable. That could say something about the grade I give it, but it also tried its hardest not to get my attention. Its gaudy and overstayed in what feels like an eternity of a watch. We have seen the very Hitchcockian theme before and we've definitely seen a better version of Perfect Blue-- one that is both bold and beautiful.
