Ghost in the Shell (1995)

03 Aug 2014

empathy and sympathy

fresh perspective
layered meaning (good for over-thinking/multiple viewing)

immersive atmosphere
beautiful scenes

unexpected outcome
acceptable suspense (developments predicted minutes before)

intense action
realistic effects
epic effects


good discussion on nature of intelligence and self-awareness, nothing new too me, however, but that probably could not be said to the general audience (hence I wish it could went further with it more efficiently). Kinda horrible cliff hanger at the end. reasonable animation
