“You are more than just a weapon. You have a soul, a ghost. When we see our uniqueness as a virtue, only then will we find peace.”
Stunning — as someone who can’t get into anime but struggled through the original GitS, this was superior in almost every way; a visual masterwork.
“And hey, what the fuck, it’ll all be over soon anyway.”
Overrated, but despite Gosling not being a singer, and the entire film suffering from being too cute, it’s light and enjoyable enough with some great ear worms.
“I wish I didn’t love you or that I loved you much more.”
Cold and emotionless, but with such rich texture and depth it’s hard not to get sucked in.
“To dream to seek the unknown. To look for what is beautiful is its own reward. A man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for?”
Grand in scale and scope, films with this pacing and subtle nature don’t come around too often but it’s beautiful, like good literature in it’s structure and imagery.
