Double Feature: PAPRIKA (PAPURIKA), 2006, Sony Pictures Classics, 90 min.

In the near future, an experimental device called the DC Mini allows people to view others’ dreams. Dr. Chiba uses the promising tool for psychotherapy on her patients, adopting the alter ego “Paprika” to enter their nocturnal reveries. But when the DC Mini is stolen by those who would abuse its power, dream worlds begin to impinge on reality, and only Paprika can bring an end to the chaos. In Japanese with English subtitles.
