    Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro

    ★★★★

    This is a super fun romp. Hard to believe it’s a first feature. It’s so confident and self-assured. I am not super familiar with Miyazaki, but I know this is very different than the rest of his work. Even still, you can see the promise here. So inventive and clever. The action is dynamic and well choreographed. Can’t wait to explore more of his filmography.

    This is truly awful. 

    Lord save me from self-important, “serious” action movies that also feature characters that are superhuman in their levels of stupidity. 

    The robots are cool.
