Great. Not quite as much edge and ?suspense as Spirited Away. Billy Crystal a bit much as the hot coal. Whatever. Many critics I noticed on sites like Rotten Tomatillos carping about the film’s anti-war agenda. Get over it you puds. Who cares? It hardly has any effect at all on the film’s primary capacity, which is to take you away—far away—to somewhere else—a different place—a place with hand drawn backgrounds and a world which is able to combine the dreamlike beauty for things past, things present and things future all into one experience. You now hear the sounds of me ordering the rest of Miyazaki’s films on Netflix.
