The Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki [Blu-ray] New Sealed – The Castle of Cagliostro (1979): Miyazaki’s first feature, a spinoff of the popular Lupin the Third anime series on which Miyazaki had previously worked. – Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984): Based on Miyazaki’s own manga series, it’s a post-apocalyptic adventure film about a princess trying to save warring factions from the darkness of metallic and toxic evil. – Castle in the Sky (1986): Another pseudo-steampunk outing where two kids travel in airships in order to find a mysterious kingdom that floats called Laputa. – My Neighbor Totoro (1989): Miyazaki’s first look at contemporary Japan, this one follows two little girls who move with their father to the country and encounter woodland spirits who help them cope with the hardships of life. Totoro became Studio Ghibli’s mascot. – Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989): The tale of a young witch who moves to the big city to find independence and her way in the world—along with her magical talking cat. She becomes a courier on her broom. – Porco Rosso (1992): Continuing Miyazaki’s love of flight and airplanes, this film (my personal favorite, perhaps) is about a WWI Italian fighter pilot cursed to look like a pig who becomes a bounty hunter, fending off air pirates over the Adriatic Sea. – Princess Mononoke (1997): Miyazaki’s darkest film, it reflects his anger and concern about rampant deforestation. Set in a mythical feudal Japan, the film follows a prince cursed with a deadly demonic presence stemming from the evils of industrialization. The only film by Miyazaki close to a Samurai epic, and easily his most violent. – Spirited Away (2001): The film that won Miyazaki his first Oscar, this to me is a Japanese take on Alice in Wonderland, concerning a young girl who stumbles upon a magical, ghostly realm full of spirits and witches and boys that are really dragons and dust sprites and all manner of visually stunning things. – Howl’s Moving Castle (2004): Based on a British fantasy novel of the same name, this film has all the magical, weird stuff that Miyazaki loves, like castles and spirits/demons and curses and—of course—flight. – Ponyo (2008): Another magical skew on contemporary Japan, this film is about a little fish creature who longs to be a person to stay with her human friend and her Sea King father who does not want that to happen. – The Wind Rises (2013): And finally, Miyazaki’s love letter to flight and elegy about the nature of creating something meant for something else. This is a biography of Jiro Horikoshi, the designer of the Mitsubishi A5M and A6M Zero fighter planes which were used by Japan in WWII. The film juxtaposes the beauty of the creation with the horror for which it was used.
