ReelViews for movies with screenplay written by 'Hayao Miyazaki'
"Castle in the Sky" may be the most straightforward action/adventure movie made by Japanese master animator Hayao Miyazaki, and it provides an excellent introduction to his catalog.
Charming and fully appropriate for viewers of all ages, it re-enforces the idea that animated movies don’t require villains to entertain.
Remains one of Miyazaki’s most memorable endeavors and is among the handful of “must see” animated films produced in the last 40 years.
An affecting and endearing collaboration between Miyazaki and Kondo, it weds a coming-of-age story with a flight of fancy to good effect.
