    On second viewing it still works despite knowing the plot.

    Sufficient time had passed since the first viewing during LIFF30 that the minor details had been forgotten.

    Finally managed to finish this great insight into the workings of Studio Ghibli as they wrapped up The Wind Rises. I now want to rewatch all of their films!

    Had to read a synopsis 20 minutes into the film, the tension was so thick.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Sorry but I didn't believe the two main characters were married. Someone can't change that quickly send drastically and not be noticed or be ignored by their partner.

    Early in the film, I thought "RAMPAGE" in the Quake announcer voice ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwSUVWGvOMU ), and it was bearable.

    Unfortunately, the film takes everything too far, and it becomes uncomfortable to watch.
