Tonari no Totoro

Hayao Miyazaki Japan, 1988

EdieEmm's rating of the film My Neighbor Totoro

Sometimes I feel like watching Miyazaki is more effective than therapy at remedying the lacks in my childhood. Gorgeous and magical. Mei is badass. The dad wins at parenting. And the catbus is terrifying. I mean, wonderful. But terrifying. Wonderfully terrifying.
