Excerpts from the article: William Gibson published his first novel, the hallucinatory cyberpunk hacker thriller Neuromancer, in 1984.

The fact that they accomplished this feat while still making a fast-paced action film that never feels like it’s repeating itself is simply amazing. It shows that it’s possible to make a work of art, even when making a movie with a silly title and in a gen ... < < < more > > > less < < <
