AVALON (gate to avalon) (2001 JAPAN) D: MAMORU OSHII W: KAZUNORI ITO P: ATSUSHI KUBO
In the near future, young people are immersed in a highly competitive, realistic and addictive VR war game. Visually fantastic live-action departure from the folks behind the animated favourite GHOST IN THE SHELL is a little more involved than that, but it`s also a pretentious monochrome bore that goes nowhere slowly while attempting to convey some muddled message. It was filmed in Warsaw, Poland. ASSAULT GIRLS was a later (terrible) companion piece.
