Episode Five: Spirited Away

IMPORTANT UPDATE: A loyal listener of the show informed me (Josh) that a handful of old episodes--from when it was just me recording on my own, sans website or co-host--were missing from iTunes, so here's one of those, coming out of...let's say the Disney vault. Enjoy! 

This week, Josh takes a look at a whole new world of animation, from Japanese auteur Hayao Miyazaki from Studio Ghibli. Pixar honcho John Lasseter introduced Americans to Spirited Away in 2002; nearly ten years later, can Josh share Lasseter's enthusiasm? Does admiring something equal liking it? Is Miyazaki a modern successor to Walt Disney? Can river spirits be dragons? Find out on this week's Mousterpiece Cinema!
