Along with Pixar, Japan's Studio Ghibli has
revitalized the art of animation, and even more than their American
counterparts they tap into a genuinely weird, surreal inventiveness. The
Brattle gathers together some of their best work in the series "Castles in the Sky: Miyazaki, Takahata, and the Masters
of Studio Ghibli"
beginning with Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke (1997). It's a
tale of Tolkien-esque complexity and scope rendered into images of breathtaking
grace, wit, and ingenuity. The Brattle Theatre is at 40 Brattle St,
Cambridge | Friday, August 31 @ 4:15 +
7 + 9:45 pm [also playing Monday] | $9.75; $7.75 students; $6.75 seniors |
