"Princess Mononoke": an epic masterpiece, one of the best movies of the 90's, relatively unknown to the west until recently

Miyazaki in Japan holds the reputation of Spielberg in the US. Each of his moves is a blockbuster, steadily on the No 1 place of the Japanese box office for the past 20 years. In the west though, his name is relatively unknown.

And that’s a shame, as Miyazaki is one of the most important Cinematographers of the past 20 years, with exceptional movies that break the boundaries of the anime gendre: exciting stories, fantastic artwork, complex characters, unique music, net small masterpieces that can touch a wider audience.
