Studio Ghibli is the source of some of the purest and most imaginative imagery ever put to film. From the distilled childhood wonder of ‘My Neighbor Totoro’ to the nuanced environmentalism of ‘Princess Mononoke’, the studio has spent the last few decades pouring its heart into art that inspires. If you have a love for these movies, then this episode is for you- we discuss each feature length film in a bracket to determine which is our favorite. Listen to us praise, criticize, compare, and argue the merits of some our favorite movies of all time.
This is our first episode in a series we have been excited to record for a long time- all about the films of Studio Ghibli, which have influenced our worldview more than any other art. So stay tuned for discussions on Ghibli’s feminism, environmentalism, and a biographical episode on its legendary cofounder, Hayao Miyazaki.
