Movies to watch if you like William Gibson's 90s-00s novels

Sprawl Trilogy? Burning Chrome and Other Stories? Fine and dandy, we love tha breathless cyberpunk hard sci-fi shit, but for my money Gibson really hit his stride between Idoru and the end of the Blue Ant Trilogy, crafting an immaculate and influential vibe of 'cyberpunk-in-the-now' with a focus on interlocks between fashion, deep politics and emergent technology that would go on to inspire the blog that changed everything... twice! Here are some flicks I think tap into that feeling.
