Miyazaki at his best,
By A Customer
This review is from: Laputa - Castle In The Sky [DVD] (DVD)
This is one my favourite movies by Miyazaki. It is probably the animation movie that best illustrates the legendary director's core set of ethical values. The importance of nature, the difficulty in distinguishing good and evil, and the ever present notion of destiny are some of this movie's central notions. It's also a wonderful display of another typical Miyazaki obsession: flying machines. The plot is a very successful adaptation of Gulliver's travels. The characters are a treat, and so much more profound than their western counterparts from the same period. You will want to see this more than once, for it's the kind of movie in which new details keep appearing every time you watch it.
