It’s hard for me to say that I have a favourite movie. Like a lot of people, I’m indecisive, and I like movies depending on the mood I’m in at the time. But whenever someone asks me, the first movie that comes to mind is “Spirited Away”. There is just so much beauty to this movie on so many levels.
Hiyao Miyazaki, the beloved director of this movie, founder of Studio Ghibli and creator of so many other wonderful movies such as My Neighbour, Totoro and Princess Mononoke, announced his retirement this weekend. This perennial child wishes him well and I hope the imagination he’s sparked in so many other creators inspires a wealth of stories, images and characters to share with the world.
