Ghost in the Shell ★★★★★

Ghost in the Shell is the kind of film that after rewatching it for the 16th time i still find myself wanting to come back to it. It is probably the quintessential cyberpunk flick that really shows what anime is capable of. It is tonally consistent, full of subtext with political undertones, philosophy and visual symbolism, it has an amazing score by Kenji Kawai and a vast futuristic setting topped with one of the best character studies i've seen from any medium.

I can honestly say that it isn't for everyone but it's one my personal favorites.
