Serial Experiments Lain (1998 IMDb)

Categorization

Surreal, intellectual cyberpunk.

Subject

Modern Japan. The dubious heroine receives email from another girl her age, who committed suicide but claims to live on in the Wired. What if the Internet was more like a parallel reality?

Commentary

David Lynch minus most of the sex. Fundamentally wrong about the social effects of the Internet.
