The best Miyazaki ever

on 12/13/2012

The floating city, Laputa, was just a legend, a dream of explorers. But Pazu, given voice by James Van Der Beek, has a goal. His goal was to find Laputa like his father did before him. And then one day a girl, voiced by Anna Paquin, fell out of the sky. And things went weird.

"Castle in the Sky" is a masterpiece of one of Japan's finest filmmakers. There is a simple artistry to Miyazaki's stories. This is a children's movie, but it is in the tradition of children's stories that appeal to all ages. A rare, pure fantasy, the film has the same magic as "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" & other early Disney films.

Editors Note
Note Hayao Miyazaki's CASTLE IN THE SKY is a rousing adventure that follows an orphan named Sheeta as she eludes the clutches of a secret agent named Muska while trying to discern her family's history. After her first escape from Muska, Sheeta meets up with a young boy named Pazu, whose father, a photographer, was disgraced after he took a picture of the legendary flying island of Laputa and had it dismissed as a hoax. When the two realize that a family heirloom Sheeta carries allows them to levitate, the two begin a search for the lost island, trailed by Muska, who is also searching for Laputa.
Entertainment Weekly "...[The film] culminates in a breathtakingly animated siege on the titular structure..." 04/18/2003 p.53
Total Film "...It delivers a fantastic adventure, its epic scope and noggin-noodling imagination recalling the work of Terry Gilliam..." 12/01/2003 p.126
Sight and Sound "Miyazaki Hayao's tremendous animated feature combines references to lost civilizations with spectacular battle scenes, golem-like robots...and ecological asides." 05/01/2006 p.89-90
