Hayao Miyazaki, the name is synonymous with beautiful fantastic worlds, imaginative design,
organically written characters as well as stunning visuals and some of the most impressive
animation of all time.
His work is universally praised and respected by all manner of film and anime fans around the world.
The sheer creative energy flowing from every frame of a Miyazaki film is immediately
noticeable by the youngest child to the oldest adult.
It's very easy to be drawn into the magical worlds and epic plotlines that make up Miyazaki's universe.
I think most people who are familiar with the source material would agree that
there is a certain unique charm shared by each of his works that while radically different
in setting, theme and character, all maintain a consistent undeniable almost spiritual feel.
A master storyteller, knowing exactly what strings to pull and when, his films never
fail to elicit an emotional response from the audience, and as a result his work has
permeated international culture so much that even if you aren't aware of his name you've
likely been exposed to his movies at somepoint.
So, today we'll be looking at Miyazaki's films as I tribute this visionary director and talk
about my favorites. Keep in mind this list is based purely on my opinion and we
are looking at feature length films written and directed by the man himself, so short
films and other studio Ghibli productions won't be making this list.
So with that in mind, I'll aboard the cat bus as we ride into my top 10 Miyazaki films.
Honorable mention: Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
This pre-Ghibli film follows the story of Nausicaa, a princess of a small village in
a post apocalyptic world full of giant insects and poisonous spores as she struggles to understand
the nature of the toxic forest that surrounds them while facing conflict from other humans.
This one teeters on the more serious side of Miyazaki's universe, and serves as a great
example of his early work and the beginnings of his signature style.
Number 10: Laputa: Castle in the Sky
A boy named Patzu discovers a girl falling from the sky, the girl named Sheeta is being
pursued by the government, army and sky pirates because she is in possession of a magic crystal
that is the key to controlling an ancient floating castle. The highlight of the entire
film is the pirates den-mother Dola, whose journey goes from that of a ruthless pirate
leader and develops into a lovable and sympathetic character.
Number 9: Ponyo
A whatever this is....goldfish? named ponyo is separated from her family and is adopted
by a young boy named Saoske whom she falls in love with. When Ponyos parents get involved
the small mountain town is devastated by a tsunami and the pair set out to find Saoske's
missing mother. This is one of Miyazaki's most abstract works pushing the bounds of creativity
in film through sheer imagination and amazingly detailed animation.
Number 8: Porco Rosso
Marco is an ace pilot, bounty hunter and womanizer, hes also an anthropomorphic pig. Retired after
fighting for the Italians in world war 1, Porco makes a living by freelance bounty hunting
and escorting. The film follows the rivalry between Porco and an american pilot over bragging
rights, honor and the hand of a beautiful woman or two or maybe more, we've
established he's a pig right? Jokes aside the film stays true to its setting with Porco
feeling very much like a film noir character from the 1920's or 30s. There are also some
stunning air combat sequences that make this a feast for the eyes as well.
Number 7: Kiki's Delivery Service
As a tradition in her family, a young witch named Kiki leaves her home for a year. Finding
herself in the city, she makes a living by starting a delivery service. Focusing on characters
over plot, this is one of the most heartwarming films I've ever seen. The relationships with
people that Kiki encounter feel very organic as are the situations she faces. This film
tugs on your heartstrings in all the right places as Kiki goes through the emotional highs
and lows that comes with her coming of age.
Number 6: Lupin 3: The Castle of Cagliostro
Before we had spiked from Cowboy Bebop, we had Lupin the third. Charismatic and aloof, he
is a master thief. After knocking off a casino only to discover the loot is counterfeit he
and his partner decide to target the source of the forgery which leads to an epic heist
plot full of beautifully animated action sequences and wonderfully written characters. Made in
1979, this is the first film on Miyazaki's filmography and it holds up amazingly well.
Number 5: My Neighbor Totoro
A family move into a countryside home and soon learn the surrounding woods are haunted
by a big lovable dopey looking magical creature named Totoro. The daughters of the family
befriend Totoro and some of the other local magical wildlife who watch over and protect
the family. Clearly on the more heartwarming side of Miyazaki's works, I would also suggest
checking out the short 2010 sequel, Mei and the Kittenbus.
Number 4: The Wind rises
Based loosely on the real life story of Jiro Horikoshi, an aeronautical engineer in Japan
during world war 2, we follow his life and times as he strives to achieve his dreams.
A slight departure from Miyazaki's normal style, minimizing the fantastic elements but retaining
his signature focus on characters. This film feels more mature than any of his other works.
Number 3: Howl's moving castle
A young girl named Sophie has a chance encounter with a powerful and charming wizard named
Howl. Shortly afterwards she is cursed to old age by a jealous witch and becomes entwined
in Howl's life as war breaks out between local nations. The highlight of the film for me
is the Sophie character, while she has the appearance of an old lady, she still retains
the mannerisms and vigor of a youth and adjusts to her curse very well. She acts as a great
analog for the viewer, slowly unraveling the mystery surrounding Howl and befriending the
various characters that surround him.
Number 2: Spirited Away
A family with a young daughter named Chihiro get lost while moving to their new home, instead
ending up at seems to be an abandoned themepark. After some very poor decisions, the family
is separated from their daughter who finds herself not alone in the park, but surrounded
by many ghostly apparitions. This is one of the most beautiful animated films ever made,
as we follow sens journey into the spirit world full of unique and imaginative characters
where anything can happen.
Number 1: Princess Mononoke
We follow a prince named Ashitaka who after defeating a demon that is attacking his village
is cursed and will soon die. He is then tasked to travel west to seek the source of the evil.
This was my first Miyazaki film and still my favorite even today. Miyazaki's charming
characters, beautiful animation and magical wimsey mixes very well with the gritty and
viloent action drama genre, delivering a rollercoaster of awe and amazement.
So those are my favorite films by the visionary author writer, director and animator, Hayao
Miyazaki, a man who has inspired and influenced countless people around the world, myself
At the time of this video Miyazaki is 74 years old, and has recently retired from filmmaking
after the release of the wind rises. This has been the sixth time he's retired, so it's
not out of the realm of possibility to perhaps see another Miyazaki film in the future, but
I wouldn't hold my breath, however his son, Goro Miyazaki seems set to continue the names
legacy with his first two films, Tales from Earthsea and From Up on Poppy Hill.
The era of traditional animation has slowly been coming to an end for years, technology
advances and the old ways become obsolete, hand drawn animation is being phased out in
favor of cheaper and quicker digital techniques.
It's inevitable, but I feel these films serve as an example of how beautiful traditional
hand drawn animation can be, and that it's an art form worth preserving for future generations.
Those are my thoughts, what are yours? Leave a comment below. Once again, this was Fade Dragontear.
Thanks for watching, peace out.
