The return of Mamoru Oshii’s visionary science fiction anime in which a prototype virtual agent takes the form of a computer virus, causing havoc within the cybernetic network.
Groundbreaking in its blending of traditional cel and computer animation and a touchstone for a great deal of the scifi cinema that followed it, Oshii’s film has never looked or sounded better than in this remastered, recoloured HD print which features 90 altered or enhanced scenes plus a new soundtrack and a re-recorded voicetrack by the original actors.
