Spirited Away

We saw Spirited Away today at Bella Botega. This is Miyazaki’s latest, and better I think then Princess Mononoke. It’s an incredibly imaginative film, beautiful, softly paced, and incredibly drawn. I came away feeling a little like I was missing a huge amount because of my obvious lack of knowledge for all the cultural and spiritual references that I assume most Japanese have, and that (I think) the movie is full of. But it’s still highly accessible, and doesn’t seem its 2 hrs and 20 minutes.
