Ghost in the Shell stills

The coolest thing on the internets this week. The just-for-fun, live-action recreation of thirty still shots, centered on the opening credits of the iconic OVA film: Ghost in the Shell.

NSFW

The original Ghost is in my personal top five for most-influential science fiction films. The closest yet that anyone has come to capturing the spirit of William Gibson's Neruomancer. Only in an espionage setting with an emergent, rather than planned AI, and with themes of identity and personal evolution in place of a focus set solely on the advancement of software intelligences.

All the stills can be found on the website of artist and graphic designer Ash Thorp.
