    Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

    ★★★★

    The highlight of Nausicaä is the shockingly beautiful setting, I've never seen anything like it. The environments are stunning, the shapes and colours of the insects and their habitats create one of the most interesting post-apocalyptic worlds out there.

I think this film could've worked as basic heartwarming fun, but I found the majority of the film a drag to get through thanks to its predictable and bland storyline.
