Scott Anderson’s review published on Letterboxd:
I tried recommending some Studio Ghibli films to an elder recently and they said "That's the good thing about having young kids, you still get to watch stuff like that."
10 years from now, my daughter will be a teenager, far too cool to hang out with her dad. What will I be doing when she is out with her friends? Watching My Neighbor Totoro.
A Miyazaki masterpiece doesn't lose its beauty as you age. Quite the opposite actually, a film like this becomes a deeper and richer experience. I feel bad for anyone who would choose to avoid it.
