"Mima Kirigoe is a squeaky-clean Japanese pop singer who decides to leave the music industry and try her hand at acting. Finding her way in her new field proves to be difficult as she is forced to take humiliating work in perverse low-budget films. Mima is stalked by an obsessed fan, irate at her decision to abandon her successful music career. A series of bloody murders follow Mima as she descends into a delusional and hallucinatory mental state, while a mysterious internet blog claiming to be written by "the real Mima" reports personal information to a leering public eye. Mima is pushed further into a psychological black hole as the film weaves a fractured and bizarre setting. Perfect blue explores the voyeuristic modern-day obsessions with celebrity, identity, and mental instability. The unsettling atmosphere conveyed by Perfect blue has seen it compared to the films of David Lynch and the books of Philip K. Dick. A unique and potent work of modern existential surrealism"--Container.
