More on Miyazaki's Films

I was thinking some more about Miyazki. You know, one of the things that sets this guy apart from other "family" filmmakers is his basic assumption about children: They are smart. That they have imaginations that can be inspired by art. That they can grasp abstract notions. He doesn't pander to children. He engages them.

We have one more movie of his -- I don't remember the name -- on our netflix queue. I don't know what we're going to do after we watch that one. Might as well sell the TV. I can only see it going downhill.
