Ghost in the Shell 15
(Japan/1995) 83 minutes
Set in 2029, this acclaimed anime follows a cyborg public security agent, Motoko Kusanagi, as she hunts down a mysterious hacker known as the Puppet Master. There are action sequences, of course, but the film also ponders on what it means to be a conscious being, whether human, cyborg, or even computer code.
The film is now regarded as one of the best anime and sci-fi films of all time and has been an inspiration for many other film-makers.
