Yesterday I saw Mamoru Oshii's new animated film Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence for the second time. This film is worth watching on the big screen (it would lose at least half its impact on a small TV screen) just for the hyperrealistic CG "sets" and backgrounds, which are virtually as detailed as live-action backgrounds would be, yet brighter and sharper. More than any other movie I've ever seen, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence gives the impression of being made of light, especially once the action arrives at "Locus Solus" (which, after watching the film, I'm convinced must be an allusion to Raymond Roussel's novel of the same name, improbable as that sounds).

As to what the movie is supposed to mean, I haven't the faintest idea.
