Saturday December 17th: Editor’s Pick

10:40am, 9:50* at IFC Center [Program & Tix]

SPIRITED AWAY
Miyazaki | 2001 | Japan | 125m
*Japanese-language version
“Castles in the Sky”
10:40am, 9:50* at IFC Center

“The towering, lost dreaminess at the heart of the film is an unmistakable obsession of this director.  Rather than Disney’s ‘Spirited Away,’  the movie could better be considered Miyazaki’s ‘Through the Looking Glass.’ His specialty is taking a primal wish of kids, transporting them to a fantasyland and then marooning them there. No one else conjures the phantasmagoric and shifting morality of dreams in the way this master Japanese animator does.”
Elvis Mitchell, The New York Times [Read More]
