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.
Ground-breaking in its blending of traditional cel and computer animation and a touchstone for a great deal of the sci-fi 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.
