8 Years Later, 4 Days to Go

8 years ago, Mamoru Oshii released what's been called "the film that defined anime." I agree with that description. I've watched it many times, most recently this afternoon. The film is increadible, thought-provoking, beautiful, and certainly one of the best animated films I've ever seen. It's called Ghost in the Shell.

Now, 8 years later, after waiting so long, he's releasing a movie composed on an unlimited budget, with almost the entire cast the same, many of the same animators, and a whole lot of experience and finess added on to one of the most brilliant production companies operating out of Japan, Production I.G. And, to top it all off, it's being co-produced by Miyazaki's brainchild, Studio Ghibli. This is gearing up to be the best movie of all time.

And it's coming out this Friday.
