The cyberpunk metropolis NeoTokyo is ravaged by a mysterious disease and police terror. Two young members of a biker gang find themselves in the middle of a government conspiracy. Philosophical, but also very brutal, filled with spectacular duels and ageless design, Akira defined the standards of science-fiction spectacles. Even though contemporary Hollywood auteurs always belt out Kubrick-Spielberg-Scott when asked about their inspiration, maybe they should say Ōtomo-Miyazaki-Oshii instead. In that precise order.
