I love the movies of Hayao Miyazaki. I remember watching Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind on HBO when I was really young and being fascinated by its post apocalyptic strangeness but it was the butchered version and too complicated for my kid brain. I then saw Totoro when I was older and loved it. I then saw Pricess Mononoki and I was a certified Miyazaki fan. Since — I have seen all of his movies multiple times. They are so personal and creative and are among my favorite movies ever. They play like soft sunlight dappled memories of being a kid. My favorites are Porco Rosso, Kiki’s Delivery Service and Totoro.
