Directed by Mamoru Oshii

Admittedly a great influence on the Wachowski brothers'
Matrix series, this ultra stylish Manga milestone started a whole new era for Anime and adult animation in general. With a convoluted plot we're taken on an amazing visual trip as a female cyborg tracks an information hacker in a futuristic Asian city. Fantastic animation and graphic scenes with incredible music and tense moods add to the many outstanding points of this modern classic. A must-see.
