Thank you for your support of the previous video! Following the previous analysis of Ghost in the Shell (1995) movie, I analyzed the second movie, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence from a behaviorist perspective. The issue here is Why Batou said what he said to the kidnapped girl at the end of the movie. The movie is full of philosophical and literary quotations, symbolisms, and Japanese cultural references. It is overwhelming but not confusing once you understand the key concept: the philosophical disease. I am interested in hearing your opinions about my analysis!


Soon we must analyse his great taste in Hawaiian shirts


Have you done perfect blue as well? So many layers to that film 😁


Theres a good book call after the long goodbye that you should check out also. It set before the second movie. I want to give nothing away but it’s worth the read.


I think this is a very accurate analysis. I particularly liked the parallels you pointed out between the film and Dante’s Divine Comedy.
