Mary and the Witch's Flower ★★½

Some really nice bits, ideas, and imagery throughout. Some great creature design, and a few exciting broom-flights. But overall oddly paced, largely inconsequential, and kinda boring. A good dulcimer(?)-heavy score and some GREAT sound design. Really wanted to like it more than I did.

David Ehrlich has a really great review for IndieWire on why it's still a notable achievement, even though it's a "Ghibli knockoff"
