Mamoru Oshii, Japan/UK, 1995, DCP, 84 min. In Japanese with English subtitles 

2029, Hong Kong. Amidst the massive city landscapes, a search goes on for the Puppet Master — an uncatchable, sentient virus capable of hacking into minds. A paranoid cyberpunk thriller, and later  influence on the Wachowskis’ Matrix trilogy, that crystallizes the obsessions and fears of the turn of the millennium, Mamoru Oshii achieved international cult status with its meditative musings on consciousness and revealed the possibilities of animation for generations to come.
