Patlabor: The Movie

Patlabor: The Movie

Pretty good techno-cop thriller with a brave attempt to look a decade into the future. Oshii does well in his projections, aside from the giant robots, and pre-asset bubble crash land reclamation projects. I suppose the robots are priced in though. Some interesting ideas about how automation changes little aside from diffusing control and making it obscure. It also looks great, though the music is mediocre.

But I'll admit, I only watched this because I wanted to watch the sequel...
