Work with college students, MFA in documentary, love movies.
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.
