Katsuhiro Otomo’s cyberpunk dystopian masterpiece is one of the most influential anime films of all time. And 30 years after its original release, its story and world are just as captivating as ever. The film follows Kaneda, the leader of a bike gang, whose friend has an accident and finds themselves with telekinetic abilities. It’s a story of government conspiracy, fraternal relationships and gnarly anime action and one that deserves to be seen on the big screen. Especially before the upcoming Hollywood remake.
