From Back Cover:

-Ty Burr, Boston Globe

"One of the most wildly (and disturbingly) inventive animated films I've seen."
-David Ansen, Newsweek

Prepare to enter the realm of fantasy and imagination - where reality and dreams collide in a kaleidoscopic mindscape of sheer visual genius. The magical tale centers on a revolutionary machine that allows scientists to enter and record a subject's dream. After it is stolen, a fearless detective and brilliant therapist join forces to recover the device before it falls into the hands of a "dream terrorist" in this gripping anime thriller from acclaimed director Satoshi Kon.

My Comments:

I'm not normally a fan of science fiction or fantasy, but I enjoy some surrealism and this is one of the most visually striking films I've ever seen.
