Hayao Miyazaki - A tiny tribute to one of animations greatest directors
I remember watching 3/4 of Laputa Castle in the Sky from a bootleg recording of the TV, it was my first real introduction to anime. I didn’t see the beginning of this movie for almost another 10 years when it was finally released on DVD in the UK, however that movie and My Neighbour Totoro had a massive impact on me growing up. They have set an extraordinarily high bar for what I expect animation and movies to accomplish. Not many movies other than Studio Ghibli films come close to capturing such brilliant characters, landscapes and stories.
