GHOST IN THE SHELL

2017 has Bring one of best movie never seen since years , I need movie like this , peace and enjoyment for my eyes and yes ,speaking about futuristic AI subjects, I’m one of those people that did not like BLADE RUNNER 2049; this one GHOST IN THE SHELL from Rupert Sanders is far better in my view, has the same charm of Alex Garland ‘s EX Machina and contains unforgettable moments (like the jellyfish scene ) but the experience is boosted starting from a linear well written story(forgivable in some little parts) and  crafted with a outstanding crew  continuing with casting choices, I LOVE Scarlett globally talking as I loved the choices of Juliette Bionche,Takeshi Kitano and the short uncredited cameo of Michael Wincott ;so let’s quote again the special EFX from Weta and others(don’t t forget Art Dept,Make up,Practical and CGI) , the Academy Award Jan Roelfs at Production Design , outstanding Jess Hall BSC Cinematography dealing with Alexa 65 and “Super Panavision 70”  65mm 5-perf film , the bloody Soundtrack by Lorne Balfe in association with Clint Mansell and last but not the least of Course Rupert Sanders Direction(And yes I hate Snow White and the Huntsman) so If you HAVE NOT GIVE YOUR CONSENT at Theaters please take your copy of BLU RAY everywhere and Enjoy the outstanding Experience of GHOST IN THE SHELL.

Scarlett Johansson plays Major in Ghost in the Shell from Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures.
