The Boy and the Heron

May 22, 2024

Miyazaki is definitely getting old, but that doesn't mean his movies are getting bad, it just means they're getting more surreal. While it may be a bit hard to follow for many viewers, and it definitely isn't Miyazaki's best movie either (then again all of his movies are goated regardless, he's never really made anything below a 7/10), this is still a great film that demonstrates the wonderful possibilities of animation. Wouldn't recommend to anyone as their first Ghibli movie tho, this is best enjoyed by someone who already has seen quite a bit of Ghibli.
