Ghost in the Shell (1995)

Ghost in the ShellI have seen the Ghost in the Shell (Kôkaku kidôtai) and the shell was naked. what if not a naked shell is all we leave behind in the end. Besides all the fast paced action and nudity this movie has the dystopian quality of “Blade Runner” only more centered on the desert of the real – the net. Somehow I got reminded of David Brin’s short story “Piecework”, esp. when it culminates in a new breed planted inside the synthetic body of a child.
So what defines being human? The ghost in the shell?
