Well, Paprika hits 88 miles per hour about 5 seconds in. An even mix of The Cell, Akira,,and Inception. Paprika is a visual delight first and foremost. The story is actually pretty straight forward and really isn't overly complex in its themes or characters. What is complex is it's constant back and forth between dreams and realities that blur together more and more as the story progresses. It is a fun mind bending movie that stuck with me primarily because of it's creative visual splendor, and it's ability to draw you into it's world.
