Princess Mononoke (1997) Review

Forest spirits entangled with mechanics, threatened by battle and heat. Animal life consumed by evil entities. Forest leafs that stay surrounded by death. The undying coat of love at first sight, with its bewildering, curious eyes. Hayao Miyazaki’s stunning swarm of nature vs. humanity, wolf vs. demon, beast vs. cannon; Princess Mononoke is a brutal and beautiful film swimming in lush animation and excitement. It’s a towering piece of animated fantasy, believable in certain depths, bubbling with gorgeous wonder. Its charming and friendly character dialogue is the warmth the film needs, and its action is better shortened, but frankly, it’s all so gorgeous to watch unravel. A big, boisterous, and spellbinding¬†experience.
