Rumor has it that Inception by Christopher Nolan was inspired by Satoshi Kon's Paprika, It is said (on Wikipedia) that Ariadne was inspired by Paprika,

No idea if this is even true, but Christopher Nolan has stated that he has had the idea in his head from either middle school or high school, so I don't imagine much was taken from it.

Not to mention stylistically Inception is a much colder, more serious and less imaginative story, which works well with his themes, that you cannot let your emotions rule your life, or something like that, so take this with a grain of salt

Also on the topic of Satoshi Kon, Darren Aronofsky holds the movie rights to Perfect Blue, another Satoshi Kon. Aronofsky's movie Black Swan has striking similarities to Perfect Blue, which Aronofsky admits, though he rightly states that Black Swan is not an adaptation.

And if you do a Google search with "darren aronofsky perfect blue movie", you'll find noted similarities, as well as a mention of another one of his movies, Requiem for a Dream.
