Ghost In The Shell: Standalone Complex 2nd Gig

Writing about web page http://www.play.com/DVD/DVD/RGNCS/3-/3299383/Ghost_In_The_Shell_SAC_2nd_Gig_Complete_Box_Set/Product.html

Not exactly a review, since the DVD isn’t released until Feb 26, but if the first gig is anything to go by, this will be the highlight of my year anyway. Ghost in the Shell Standalone Complex is part political intrigue, part cop show, and part extended discourse on Cartesian mind-body duality (or ghost-shell duality in the terminology of the series). If you miss the buzz you used to get from cyberpunk in its heyday, this will hit the same spot. The series is set in the near future where crimes are committed by, for example, hacking into people’s minds (everyone in the world of GITS:SAC are linked together through cybernetic implants, except for vagrants, or those who suffer from a standalone complex), or swapping brains, or stealing wine (the only standard international currency). Section 9 combat organ-leggers, cyber-terrorists, clones, and all with a combination of philosophical discourse and kick-@$$ action. Standalone Complex is the epitome of posthuman cool.
