new miyazaki film
i just signed up for netflix. now what do i do? any suggestions?
i guess criterion is a good place start
also saw adventureland which id rate higher but still left me wanting. sort of a slight coming of age comedy that didnt play directly for laughs.
Mottola (who also wrote the script) and his actors manage to shape the movie into something whole and tangible, capturing, among other things, the shapeless listlessness of summer, especially at that age when you're technically an adult and yet you're left waiting for life to begin.
