I did watch two DVDs I checked out: Ghost in the Shell 2, and Perfect Blue. Both are films I missed in the theater, but had been wanting to see for some time.
I'm afraid GitS2 didn't really come up to standard of the original GithS, for me at least - but the first one is also one of my very favorite movies, so I'm probably holding the second one to absurdly high standards. On its own terms it is a fine enough work.
I really enjoyed PB, very surreal multi-layer story. The director, Satoshi Kon, had a film called Paprika in this year's SIFF, but both of the showings have already passed. I imagine I'll get ahold of it on DVD eventually, like I did this one.
