Serial Experiments Lain (1998) IMDb


Surreal, intellectual cyberpunk.


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?


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