This is a work of profound and melancholic beauty; every bit as essential in the 21st century as it was in the 20th.

Daily Telegraph

The Hollywood remake is on its way this year, so what better time to rediscover this anime classic based on the Manga comic of the same name.

Ghost In The Shell follows cyborg policewoman Motoko as she hunts a mysterious and powerful hacker called the Puppet Master, only to be drawn into a complex sequence of political intrigue and a massive cover-up.

Widely considered to be one of the greatest animes of all time thanks to its absolutely breath-taking visuals, Ghost In The Shell has had a huge influence on sci-fi and action cinema and is an absolute must-see for not only fans of animation but for anyone with a love of cinema.
