Paprika-director Satoshi Kon, RIP

PAPRIKA

Satoshi Kon's PAPRIKA

Io9 is reporting that anime director Satoshi Kon has passed away, at the age of 47. Details about the cause of death have not been released. Kon first earned attention in the west for directing the anime psycho-thriller PERFECT BLUE. His other credits include the charming TOKYO GODFATHERS, PARANOIA AGENT, and PAPRIKIA (which Io9 cites as an inspiration for INCEPTION). Kon was in pre-production on a new film, to be titled THE DREAMING MACHINE.
