    Oshii's best by far!

    This is a taught, beautiful, animated feature by director Mamoru Oshii.

    Dipping into aspects of a phsychological thriller and air warfare, Sky Crawlers is a frightening conceptualization of a potential future where companies battle like military powers in a form of "war games" that take real lives. The lives taken are a mysterious breed of humanity known as Kildren.

    Kenji Kawai produces an awesome musical score and the animation itself is Mamoru Oshii's sharpest; the dialogue is the most well written yet in Oshii's already stunning line of films. For anime fans and fans of Mamoru Oshii, enjoy!
