MARK KERMODE'S FILM OF THE WEEK
Ghost in the Shell
Ghost in the Shell

It was a busy year, 2029.

It's when John Connor triumphs and Wolverine dies.

While in Japan, flesh and metal merge as human consciousness can now be stolen, and justice sought on the streets and through the wires.

Mamoru Oshii's film is a cerebral and muscular thing - a vital inspiration for The Matrix and an ambassador for anime worldwide. A justly forgotten live-action version followed in 2017, but we present the masterful original as the essential anime from our Japan 2020 season.
