    ★★★★

    This pales in comparison to Oshii's work and Stand Alone Complex, but it's nonetheless a breath of fresh air amid the blockbuster crowd. The doll-like appearance of Johansson as she lies in the chair towards the end is a great touch that elegantly references those prior works; too bad there wasn't more of that.
