Better late than never. Have a Happy Thanksgiving! And hopefully nobody throws a cymbal at your head during Thanksgiving dinner. Or fires a magical girl arrow at you. Or moves you to a capital to become a princess. Or summon an elephant to trample the dinner table. As long as that doesn’t happen, it should be going smoothly.

Madness. Coiling in our ears as thoughts collude and form into the effluvial grime of our own minds. Pure, beautiful madness. Spreading and consuming all into forms beyond our limited comprehension. Wonderful. Blissful. Madness.

The Studio Ghibli Retrospective: ‘My Neighbors the Yamadas’

yamadas 1

 

New Studio Ghibli Retrospective piece is up and it’s on a very underseen and underappreciated work from Isao Takahata: My Neighbors the Yamadas, which is warm, and philosophical, and very, very hysterical. Click here for the full article on Movie Mezzanine.
