I really want to watch a Hayao Miyazaki movie tonight.
Hayao Miyazaki is a genius in all senses of the word. His films are absolutely beautiful and speak on so many levels. It is hard to make a film that both children and adults will love. I have probably seen Spirited Away over 15 times. When I was younger I used to always watch it in the car with my siblings during long car trips. It was our little tradition. I remember the first time we watched Howl’s Moving Castle; we finished the 3 hour movie and immediately started it over again!
Because of their iconic stature they are now among the most treasured and valuable of film memorabilia. As was customary for important props, a number of pairs were made for the film, though no one knows exactly how many. Five pairs are known to have survived; one pair was stolen in 2005 and has never been recovered.
