Post-human

Ghost in the Shell (Rupert Sanders, 2017). This 80s cyberpunk future already feels retro, like something pre-Matrix and straight to video, but a more imaginative story and a sharper screenplay could have allowed Scarlett Johansson (quiet, grim, warmer than in Under the Skin) to be one of the better post-human characters. She almost always deserves better.
