Spirited Away 2001 / Available On Streaming Rental or Purchase

Bryan Tarpley

This is director Hayao Miyazaki and producers Studio Ghibli at their best. On the surface level, it’s a film about a young girl who stumbles into an abandoned theme park with her parents. She accidentally finds herself in a creepy spiritual world wherein she must find a way to save her parents and escape. More broadly, however, this is a film about the struggle for Japanese cultural identity in the wake of the economic crisis of the early 90’s. A deep and deeply hypnotizing movie about a little girl’s journey.

Magic is real and it lives in Japan under the tip of Hayao Miyazaki’s pencil. This is, hands down, the best aimated movie of this century.
