Thoughts on Ghost in the Shell (2017)

Ghost in the Shell (1995) raises questions about the nature of consciousness and identity but refuses to answer them. Ghost in the Shell (2017) tells you that you should be asking a question, then answers it the same way over and over and over to make sure you get the message. (It’s also inordinately fond of the words ‘ghost’ and ‘shell’.)

Well, at least it’s pretty, with those lush visuals of future Japan to go with its American lead and Danish sidekick and British villain and Asian supporting cast.
