Japanese animation, or “anime,” is rapidly becoming one of Japan’s top cultural exports to the U.S. At the forefront of this movement of cinematic, thoughtful animated films is director Mamoru Oshii. This is the first book to take an in-depth look at Oshii’s films, from his early days working on the TV program “Urusei Yatsura” & the critically acclaimed “Ghost in the Shell,” to “Avalon,” his most recent feature. The book details Oshii’s evolution as a director, paying special attention to his unique style & symbolism. Written in an intelligent, yet easily accessible style, it will be of interest to everyone from film scholars to the general anime fan. Ruh is the webmaster of a website dedicated to the analysis of Japanese pop culture. Color & b&w illus.
