Welcome to Multiplex Time Machine.

This weekly limited-run series is based on the idea that 2007 was a surprisingly great year in modern movie history. It saw bad movies, good movies, and GREAT movies, but more than anything, it saw NOTABLE movies. Every episode of this show will look at a release from that same week 15 years ago, in 2007.

In Episode 21 of Multiplex Time Machine, we're looking at Satoshi Kon's final film, Paprika, originally released in the United States on May 25, 2007. With Paprika, Kon sets his sights on dreams years before Christopher Nolan made a little movie called Inception. Enjoy!

Paprika was directed by Satoshi Kon, from a screenplay by Kon and Seishi Minakami, based on the novel by Yasutaka Tsutsui.

Multiplex Time Machine is hosted by Jeremy Latour and Ian Averill.
