“The film airily occupies a hybrid past, half fin de siècle Ruritania, half WWII siege, and half Tolkienian magic play. Giant battle planes rain bombs on Tudor Euro-cities but also unleash swarms of flying war demons with pig snouts and top hats to combat intervening wizards… It’s a utopian vision of a calamitous world, and Miyazaki’s evocation of old-school war — a night city during a scarifying blitz, a crippled battleship drifting into a civilian harbor, behemoth vessels looming and roaring with imaginary engine work — can be awesomely discomfiting.”
Michael Atkinson, the Village Voice
