Director: Mamoru Oshii
Language: Japanese (subtitled in English)

Based on a manga by Masamune Shirow, Mamoru Oshii’s 1995 animation may have a thriller story line — in 2029 a security unit searches for an elusive hacker — but it delves deeply into the question of human identity in the age of the cyborg. The film is being issued on Blu-ray for the first time by Manga Entertainment and Anchor Bay to celebrate the 25th anniversary since the first publication of Shirow’s comic.
