My Neighbor Totoro

My Neighbor Totoro ★★★★

Film 3 of 365 in 2017

Truly a great, poignant and beautiful animated tale. My Neighbor Totoro is a film that is so so beautiful and touching. The animation is drop dead gorgeous, and the characters are fresh with life and detail in their development. For most of the film, it's pretty much conflict-less, but it's simplicity is a unique part of the film. Although I didn't find it to be quite as moving or as good as Spirited Away (which happens to be my favorite movie), I can't deny the greatness of this film and it's fine craft.

RATING: A-
