Gestern ist einer der ganz großen Animeregisseure mit nur 47 Jahren verstorben. Jedes einzelne seiner Werke ist für mich ein absolutes Highlight und daher finde ich es besonders tragisch.

Hier eine Übersicht. Trailer habe ich verlinkt. Alles ist in Deutsch erhältlich. Paprika war meine erste Blu-ray die bei mir noch vor der dazugehörigen PS3 eintraf.

Seine Werke hatten auch Einfluss auf den Westen - Darren Aronofsky baute bspw. einige Elemente aus Perfect Blue in seinen neuen Film 'Black Swan' ein.

Satoshi Kon is a Japanese director, screenwriter, and animator. A key member of the animation studio Madhouse, he is one of the most celebrated anime directors in the world, and one of the few who have had a strong impact outside of Japan. His passing leaves a void in the animation industry which might never be filled again. While there are other talented directors and storytellers, there are none who capture the same dreamlike feeling his films invoked regardless of genre, and it is unlikely that we will see animated films like those he made ever again.

As the main character becomes gradually less and less secure of her sense of reality, so too is the audience drawn into the same feelings by the visual presentation of the movie.

Title: The Dream Machine
Year of release: 2011 (?)
Format: Movie
Summary: The latest film Kon was working on before his death. He referred to it as a "road movie" featuring only robot characters. The target audience is meant to be a younger crowd, but he mentioned that those who enjoy his films will definitely feel at home. As of now it is unknown if the movie will be completed (it's likely), or who will be taking over his responsibilities on the project. -_-

With feelings of gratitude for all that is good in this world, I put down my pen.

Well, I'll be leaving now.

Traurig.

Ich habe seine Anime-Werke geliebt, besonders Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers und Paprika (verrückt!).

Oje, ich muss gestehen, dass ich den Herren nicht kenne, dennoch ist es traurig, wenn so ein bei vielen beliebter Regisseur die Welt verlässt.
Ruhe in Frieden.

Ich hab sie alle. Zumindest solche, die auf DVD oder BD erschienen sind. Millennium Actress habe ich sogar 2x - aufgrund zwei verschiedener deutscher Synchros.

Auf der französischen DVD von DreamWorks ist eine deutsche Synchro, auf der deutschen DVD von ufa ebenfalls - aber eben eine andere. :D
