Howl’s Moving Castle

howl's moving castleThis is the latest movie from director Hayao Miyazaki. Disney has picked up his last three films and distributed them in the US; Howl’s had limited release last week. I downloaded a subbed cam video of this about a month ago. I enjoyed it and as most critics have said, it is above and beyond anything that Disney could actually produce. Compared to Miyazaki’s recent efforts I was disappointed by this film. I would rank it third behind Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke. It is really good and I will see it in the theater when it’s released here, but I feel it was a little too convoluted and is not his best effort.
