Original Title: Kôkaku kidôtaiJapan: Mamoru Oshii, 1995

(Watched with the English dub from the Manga DVD release)

IMDB reference

GHOST IN THE SHELL is both impressively cinematic and philosophical. A compelling story of ideas played out in a perfectly realised Baudrillardian cyberspace.

The Count's Verdict: I agree with the Anime aficionados (unlike my response to AKIRA) GHOST IN THE SHELL is essential to any would be fan of Japanese animation or smart SF cinema.
