Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind ★★★★

My first Ghibli film. Blame my parents.

I say without an ounce of hyperbole, that if I had seen this movie (and I assume Studio Ghibli in general) as a child my understanding and appreciation for movies would be a lot greater. Even watching it for the first time at 21 years old I experienced childlike wonder; I can't even begin to imagine how incredible this must be for someone who watches this with nostalgia.
