Animation • R • 1988 • 2 hr 4 min
I don’t love this nearly as much as a lot of film buffs, but it’s good! Definitely good!
Gripping candy for the senses with some of the most fluid animation I've ever seen in anime. Story was kinda meh, but far from unenjoyable.
This work is often credited for putting anime in the world's radar. And such reputation is not undeserved. It really is That Amazing.
Unique film, with an incredible setting, perfectly captured by amazing art direction and animation, with intense action and an alluring plot
Absolute masterpiece. Definitely one of the best movies of all time
Classic masterpiece. A visceral journey in the dark side of the anime world
Stunning and otherworldly. It's a classic for a reason.
It feels like an animated mix between Blade Runner and 2001: A Space Odyssey. A masterpiece film who change the whole anime industry.
Fantastic and a classic for a reason. Seen it like 13 times and it never disappoints each time.
A beautifully detailed film where every event affects the characters and story. It is even worth watching based on animation alone.
