My Neighbor Totoro

My Neighbor Totoro ★★★★

This film was inevitable, and there's nothing wrong with that. At some point you knew they were just going to literally do a child's imagination, and it's... absolutely spectacular. The simplicity of this plot and world over Nausicaa and Castle in the Sky is welcome, but do not think that means there's any less gorgeous wonder in this. Like an actual child, the wonder is in the simplicity of how things work rather than the grandeur of the universe. O, to live in the mind of a child.
