What is Mamoru Oshii's true masterpiece?
Are there people who think its something other than Jin-roh?
Yes, sane people who know it's Ghost in the Shell.
>implying it's not Angel's Egg
Jin-roh is overrated as fuck, Patlabor 2 is superior in every way.
>there are fucktards on /a/ who thinks Jin Roh is the best Oshii film and not Patlabor or Ghost in the Shell
Why do people lump Jin-Roh on Oshii?
He didn't direct it. Yes, he was the author of the source material and was involved with the script of the movie, and?
How many times do you hear Hollywood movies being credited to the scriptwriters? It's always Spielberg's film, Nolan's, etc.
This movie is Okiura's, deal with it.
Shit, Okiura was in charge of the storyboards, too.
Patlabor 1 or 2.
Who cares about some no-name director
How famous he is is irrelevant, it's his film.
No mentions for Gosenzosama Banbanzai?
Maybe as director he is unknown, but as Key Animatior/Animation supervisor, he's done quite a lot for I.G., not to mention he latter directed A letter to Momo. and that movie did pretty well.
Kubrick and Clark co-wrote the movie, but Kubrick was the one to direct it, and I don't actually recall ever hearing anyone I talk to call it anything besides "Kubrick's Film".
People know about Clark's role, but only mention in papers and such.
He didn't direct that movie.
because /a/ is stupid enough to think writing is more important than how that story is told visually in a visual medium
Patlabor 1 is best. But all Patlabor is good.
Not him, but I feel like clearing this up, since someone's bound to say "So it doesn't matter if the writing is trash as long as it looks pretty?"
No, but presentation counts a lot.
Even the best of scripts can be ruined by a shitty director with no sense of what good presentation is, making it a completely uneventful experience.
