Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind ★★★

My first Miyazaki film. If you didn't know it was made in the 1980s, don't worry, the music will let you know.

I guess I've been a snob for all these years. I had never seen a Miyazaki or Studio Ghibli film. I just figured they weren't for me and was never interested in seeing them. I don't know why exactly. I'm sure I had a stupid reason that didn't make sense. Like I didn't like the style of animation (which is definitely stupid when you consider the fact that I'm all about hand-drawn animation like the old Disney films), or that the stories didn't appeal to me. Or something or other.
