Millennium Actress [Blu-ray]

Experience the gorgeous new restoration of what many believe to be Satoshi Kon’s (Perfect Blue, Paprika) greatest work, Millennium Actress. When the legendary Ginei Studios shuts down, filmmaker Genya Tachibana and his assistant are tasked with interviewing its reclusive star, Chiyoko Fujiwara, who had retired from the spotlight 30 years prior. As Chiyoko recounts her career, Genya and his crew are literally pulled into her memories where they witness her chance encounter with a mysterious man on the run from the police. Despite never knowing his name or his face, Chiyoko relentlessly pursues that man in a seamless blend of reality and memory that only Satoshi Kon could deliver. Boasting countless awards, including the Grand Prize in the Japan Agency of Cultural Affairs Media Arts Festival, which it shared with Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away, Millennium Actress is a must-see for anime fans of all ages.

  3. A Touching and Uniquely Told Story This film had one of the most unique premises I’d seen in awhile.Basically, a film director and his cameraman go to interview a famous actress, now in her twilight years, who suddenly and inexplicably vanished from the film world.She allows them to come to her home and speak to her, something no one but her house keeper has been allowed to do for years.She tells them the story of her life, and they relive it together through the plots of the films in which…
