Paprika

Dir. Satoshi Kon (2006). Anticipating Inception, Paprika was the late cyberpunk animation director’s last and most complicated anime. A new sort of "psychotherapy machine" allows doctors to download and explore their patients' dreams—which are variously represented as derelict theme parks, parading objects, or Hollywood movies. It also allows for something far worse. As the heroine exclaims, "Implanting dreams in other people's heads is terrorism!"
