posted on by Mikhail Koulikov
As the theatrical premiere of Satoshi Kon's Paprika approaches, the New York Times is running an article on the film and an interview with the director. In the interview, Kon shares his thoughts on the role images drawn from traditional Japanese religion play in the film and on the overall intention behind Paprika. He also criticises fans who use anime "as a means of escape from their real lives" and calls for a "balance between real life and imagination."
