After paying money I will never get back for the disappointment that is 2017's Ghost in the Shell, I realised that it hadn't scratched my itch for a Tokyo-esque sci-fi tech opera. It delivered, mostly, on the dystopian vision of Tokyo that Evan Narcisse called "futureshock design porn". But while its setting contained infinite storytelling possibilities, Ghost in the Shell tapped into few of them. Leaving the theatre, I felt awfully unsatisfied.
