From aclaimed director Satoshi Kon (Paranoia Agent, Tokyo Godfathers, Millennium Actress, and Perfect Blue) comes another sure-to-be anime classic titled Paprika.

Plot Summary: Prototypes of a device that is able to act as a "dream detective" to enter into people's dreams and explore their unconscious thoughts are being produced. Before the government can pass a bill authorizing the use of such advanced psychiatric technology, one of the prototypes is stolen, sending the research facility into an uproar. In the wrong hands, the potential misuse of the device could be devastating, allowing the user to completely annihilate a dreamer's personality while they are asleep. Renowned scientist, Dr. Atsuko Chiba, enters the dream world under her exotic alter-ego, code name "Paprika" in an attempt to discover who is behind the plot to undermine the new invention.

Paprika will premiere stateside (in select theaters) on May 25th and I'll be looking foreward to it.
