Innovative anime.

"And where does the newborn go from here? The net is vast and infinite."

Back when it was first released, Ghost in the Shell was looked upon as a thoroughly engaging and original piece of anime. Over 10 years on the film has lost next to none of its original impact.

But it's a shame the film is too convoluted, confusing, and rather boring at times too. I will admit t... read more

From the very beginning, Ghost in the Shell promises to be something very special. The beautiful opening music sets the tone, emanating the futuristic, mystical quality that pervades the film. And for the next 85 mins it will put a spell over you and catapult you into its brilliantly realised vision.

The visuals are spectacular! Truly mesmerising. It's difficult not to be completel... read more

Ah, Ghost in the Shell, fácilmente una de las obras mas vanguardista que haya podido ver.

“Bueno, no sé si realmente todos ustedes quienes me están leyendo ahora mismo estén realmente listos para un viaje como este, y más teniendo en cuenta la forma en la que está hecha la película; no es algo para cualquiera.

Ghost in the Shell es una de las más famosas representantes del cyberpunk, alabada por muchos críticos, de la que se dice de todo. Una obra que influyó tanto en su medio que hasta el día de hoy seguimos teniendo muestras de ello. Cabe destacar que en la década de los años noventa varias obras animadas desde el país del Sol Naciente empezaron a emerger, y Ghost in the Shell es una de las que más me gustan, y claro, no me quedaré sin hablar de ella.

Primero voy a que el aspecto técnico es algo simplemente bestial.

“Languid pacing and sinuous premise notwithstanding, "Ghost in the Shell" succeeds brilliantly as both an anime and a standalone, exhilarating mix of sleek yet gritty, hard-edged visuals, cyberpunk imagery and propulsive, action-packed thrills. Wholly undiluted and cerebral in its gambit, scope and execution, the film's cross-genre dexterity, majestic character designs, methodically detailed settings, colouring and CG serve to implement and sustain mesmeric inscrutability in spite of its relatively concise run time and unusually literary dialogue. It may even be too mind-expanding, philosophically expository and opaque for nascent fans of the medium, but the film will indeed strike a chord with those directly affected by its subject matter, i.e. body dysphoria, displacement and identity cr” read more

Slant's 100 Best Sci-Fi Movies of All Time (100 movies items)

"Mamoru Oshii’s adaptation of Masamune Shirow’s manga certainly wasn’t the first cyberpunk film to grapple with the existential quandaries of androids, but few films so thoroughly embody the hollow despair of a world increasingly run by androids mechanically performing their assigned tasks while increasingly wondering why they do them. There are firefights galore in Ghost in the Shell, but Oshii stages them with an eerie calm rooted in the detached, robotic perspective of the film’s prota"

“Ah, Ghost in the Shell, fácilmente una de las obras mas vanguardista que haya podido ver. Es gracias a la existencia de GitS que cosas como ergo proxy, Texhnolyze y otras obras anime se empezaron a enfocar en el terreno de lo cyberpunk para explorar diversos tópicos relacionados con la tecnología y su uso diario, e inclusive es la principal inspiración para matrix, obra que por su parte también haría escuela en occidente. Y por otra parte, GitS fue una de las razones por la cual la industria del anime recuperaría sus fuerzas y volvería a renacer, junto a Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Ghost in the Shell es a mi parecer el refinamiento de lo que exploración temática se refiere, ya que si bien cosas como Akira ya existía, su enfoque no llegó a ser ni de chiste tan desarrollad” read more
