The Kids Talk Film: PAPRIKA
Twitch has been on the internet long enough that many of its writing staff have children who are old enough to understand and consume media in a way that is both raw and fresh, along with an inkling of consideration afterwards. Many of us fall in love with the movies when we are so young. Thus, we are offering you the perspective of smaller children as they react to seeing classic filmmaking on the big screen.
In the past, Willem (Age 10) and Miranda (Age 8) have talked the films of Studio Ghibli as well as the early 007 outing, Thunderball as a part of our Twitch In Bondage series. Here they take in one of the most sophisticated Japanese animated films, Kon Satoshi's Paprika. The kids talk about shared dreams, the internet, cinema, and cartoon nudity - as well as the creepiness of old photographs and broken doll parts.
The entire archives of Kids Talk Film can be found over at Vimeo including discussion on films as varied as Time Bandits, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Jaws.
