    "I don't think this is going to be one of my top choices for best psychological thriller movies. First, I am not a fan of animated series. Secondly, this is not a thriller nor psychological movie at all. I prefer A Quiet Place or the legendary movie Psycho. It's classic!"

    "I am always looking for psychological thriller movies. I was told to watch Paprika. I watched it but was not all that entertained. I found it a little to much for my tastes. I think this would appeal to younger people than myself."

    "I'm really not a fan of this anime. There are so many better ones out there to watch. The only reason I would consider finishing this is if I ran out of other shows to watch, which won't happen anytime soon."

    "This show is described as "...where reality and dreams collide in a kaleidoscopic mindscape of sheer visual genius". If you are looking for a psychological anime series this is probably a good bet."

    "Paprika is by one of my favorite (and sadly passed) directors, Satoshi Kon. It explores the nature of reality and identity and is just very very cool."
