*** CAUTION: This video has nudity, rape, and violence ***
It's within org guidelines for a local video but it's not something you'd call kid friendly. It also has spoilers in it so hopefully you've seen Perfect Blue before watching this (or, for that matter, before reading the rest of my description).
The video is supposed to be from the viewpoint of Mimi after the events of the movie are done, the entire thing is her memories that keep hurting her. For the most part the 'idol Mimi' is meant to represent her memories rather than a physical person or insanity like in the movie. Basically what I was going after was the the fake rape, the real attempted rape, the murders, and her selling her body were all tramatic events that she just doesn't get over the next day like it was a stubbed toe. Even though the end of Perfect Blue shows Mimi as having moved past it she probably still has some bad nights remembering what happened to her. Although I didn't show it, I mentally picture Mimi years later curled up into a fetal position crying in middle of the night and this video is what's going through her head. Just thought I'd mention that in case anyone assumed I just strung together random pointless clips or something.
On review I notice that I screwed up the aspect in a way I've never seen anyone else do. I now know how I did it so I won't do it again in the future but it isn't worth remastering this just to fix that. If you don't notice it then don't worry about it. If you do notice it then please pretend you didn't.
