Fifth about The Seventh

The Wind Rises

The Wind Rises: Hayao Miyazaki imbues magic in this tale, even as it is, for the most part, a very realistic, but always rich story that is at the same time like and unlike what is seen in an animated feature nowadays. This certainly could have been an non-animated film at all, but thankfully it is: the animation and the character design are gorgeous and detailed, the colors are great to look at. Miyazaki has been one of the premier storytellers working in cinema for the past 20 or 30 years, for his ability to create wonderful worlds, tell entertaining and engaging stories, with rich characters and retain relevant themes. That this may be his last feature is both fitting and heartbreaking; but we should try to live.
