castle in the sky

Castle in the Sky (Hayao Miyazaki, 1986) - 8/10

Another beautiful created film from Hayao Miyazaki. The animation and artwork is great, as always. Miyazaki has a way of creating different worlds -- the castle in Howl's Moving Castle, the forest in Princess Mononoke -- wanting to submerge myself into the tv screen. The floating castle in Castle in the Sky is no different. And the score by Joe Hisaishi creates a subtle mood and strong chemistry between the two main characters.
