interesting matchup. i think most people would take Ghost...but not me.

Both extremely influential films. Perfect Blue is probably better, but since this is a favorites contest, Ghost in the Shell gets my vote.

Perhaps Perfect Blue was intentionally confusing in the third act. That just didn't work for me; it was a pretty great mystery movie that was really almost ruined by a terrible plot twist. A supernatural explanation would've been much better. That being said, it's pretty good for what it is and I think there was open room for some good debate anyways. Ghost in the Shell is good, but it's not a classic, really. At least, not for me; Perfect Blue could get that title tho.
