    Simply the best. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    ★★★½

    One of the very best Miyazaki films IMO. Beautiful characters. Beautiful development of a family. The only weak part I saw was a rather simplistic, unmotivated cessation of war.

    ★★★★

    Extremely intense cat and mouse chase through the hot Texas sun. Quirky characters a la Cohen Brothers. One of the scariest villains you are likely to see in a film.

    I like to be able to compare the film at hand with any that might be similar, but I can't think of any like this one. A new classic - but if you have not seen it before, it's worth the hype - be sure to see it.

    Jodhaa Akbar

    ★★★★½

    A grand epic in the spirit of C. B. DeMille or Kurosawa. I'm not well-versed in Ballywood film but this is simply wonderful. It is quite talkie at times, not a swordfest, but if you follow the story it will remind you of Romeo and Juliet or maybe the Bible story of Ester. You are even likely to enjoy the music if that is not your thing.

    Highly recommneded.
