Remember the first time you saw The Matrix? You know, that ice-cold jolt of excitement? Well, Mamoru Oshii's 1995 cyberpunk animé adventure will make you feel much the same.
Ghost is superficially the story of a cyborg secret agent and her search for a master hacker. But onto this core plot it welds a Disney-bashing level of detail, prolonged musings about the human soul and an eye-saucering hard line in action. The philosophy occasionally overwhelms, but there's always an adreno-overload set-piece - - a tank-versus-cyborg scrap, a blistering opening assassination sequence - - just around the corner.
