My Neighbor Totoro (1988)

Maybe I’m just not a big fan of Hayao Miyazaki’s work, because as much as I love the visuals in his work, his movies never seem to register with me. That trend continues with “My Neighbor Totoro” after disappointing experiences with “Spirited Away” and “Ponyo” – while I find the animation and music absolutely gorgeous and charming, the movie’s narrative left me indifferent and kinda bored, even though I found some moments very entertaining and a pleasure to watch. Just not my jam I guess.
