Now, the praised 1995 science-fiction anime Ghost in the Shell is up to bat.
For one reason or another, it’s just one of those films that slipped through the cracks for me and I never got around to seeing it.
The story offers a profound look at the crisis of our humanity when technology is constantly knocking on the door, something that’s becoming more of a reality every single day.
Although it’s certainly not without its problems, including a serious drag in the third act, Ghost in the Shell was a unique film experience with equal flair and substance.
Ghost in the Shell is an adaptation of Mamoru Oshii’s 1995 sci-fi anime classic, which itself is an adaptation of Masamune Shirow’s manga of the same name.
Amidst a cybernetic-riddled future, “The Major” (Scarlett Johansson) is a unique creation: a human saved from a horrible accident whose brain and consciousness have been transferred into a robotic body.
