Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell ★★★★★

Ghost in the Shell is still what I consider to be the golden standard for anime and it's been that for a very long time, it was the film that opened my eyes to the entire world of anime that I was missing out on. Most impressively of all things is how perfectly this film balances out being an abstract science think piece on identity, a commentary on Japanese relations, and a straight-forward thrilling vibrant action spectacle. It's a fulfilling experience that still holds just as much if not more relevance and influence over twenty years later from its prior release.
