Some may have negative associations with “anime”, but even the biggest doubter has to appreciate what this adaptation of Masamune Shirow’s manga has done for contemporary culture. It’s a pioneering work of digital animation, one of the most important anime in history, the main inspiration for the Wachowskis’ “The Matrix”. This cyberpunk standard alongside “Blade Runner” guards the genre’s stylistic canon. It is also the film which gave us Motoko Kusanagi – one of the most iconic female protagonists in pop culture.
