This is a wild animated ride that plays constantly with perceptions of reality in an inventively visual way. Christopher Nolan acknowledged the influence of this film on Inception and you can definitely see the parallels. It's a striking thrill ride that passes by all too quickly.

A disarmingly haunting and mesmerizingly wacky anime about dreams merging into relaity; you may not know what's going on, but the images can speak for themselves. Final Grade: B+

I really love in this order 1. Movies about dreams, 2. Dream sequences in movies, 3. Anime/manga. So, I'm just giving you the kind of recommendation that you would need for decide if watch it or not. For momments it has a non linear argument and imaginery/plot. But is not that difficult to follow and you'll be surprised and pleased by the result. I'd say that is a must see for any anime lover.

I'm a recent fan of Satoshi Kon so I had to watch this film. Although the premise is simple, it does get really creative when it needs to be. There are jokes in the film--jokes that one will only get if he or she has seen Kon's other films. Nonetheless, that doesn't mean that it's less enjoyable for other viewers. I love the spy scene. It reminded me so much of "Alias," a show I miss so dearly. The soundtrack of the film is recommended, too.

This is the first Satoshi Kon film that I ever got to see, and I have to say that it was one of the most interesting movies that I have seen in a long time. The style of animation is a classical design that you can find in many different Manga films, but the story line keeps things moving very well. The story can seem complex, but if you try to follow it you will be able to understand it pretty well. The textures are amazing and the animation is flawless. If you like Japanimation then this is one to check out.
