This movie comes from the unbelievably talented (and no longer with us) Satoshi Kon.
Truly a work of animation genius, this movie executes transitions and transformation sequences with a flare I personally have never seen elsewhere. If nothing else, this movie is pure "eye candy".
As far as plotline goes, I'd say it makes more sense to say this is a movie about understanding the capabilities of technology- both for all the good they can do and for all their terror. A group of experts create a machine that allows other people to record and view your dreams, which opens up the possibilities for psychologists to help you through your unconscious thoughts, but also allows you to share a whole new side of yourself to friends. The epic downside to this is that is seems without the proper safe guards in place, the machine can also allow other people inside of your dreams ... Dun dun dunnn~!
I would suggest this film to any animator or cinematographer, and anyone who has an interest in thought provoking movies. If you like things simple and clear cut, this one is probably not for you.
