We watched a lot of it in highschool. How this film transcends the norm. Timeline of anime and the cyberpunk aesthetic.
The influences that went into this movie. The huge influence this movie had on everything after.

Awesome. Exploding heads. Japanese pornography laws. Encryption as armament.
The spectrum on jacked-in-ness in the movie. Taxonomy of androids, cyborgs, and robots.
Mind-body dualism. The treatment of consciousness in the film.
Emergent AI. What is life? Evolution of digital life forms.
