What can I say about the man who can turn such a stunning and romantic (not gushy, mushy romance but human-in-harmony with nature, utopian romance) imagination into such lushly exquisite visuals? To watch a Miyazaki film, especially one of his more recent ones, is to fall under the spell of a master animator at the height of his talent and sensitivity. His sense of colour and eye for detail create wonderfully vibrant movies that you explore rather than just watch. His perspective in telling his stories is so alien to our western experience to make the films exotic but the themes are still potent enough to touch many western fans. I find it difficult to get certain of his films out of my mind:
Kiki’s Delivery Service
Howl’s Moving Castle
and especially Princess Mononoke, among many others.
Watch and see if you can keep from falling under his spell.
If wishes were horses
