5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Movie of 1999, January 6, 2001
This review is from: Princess Mononoke (DVD)
It made a lot of people's top ten list, I know. But I think they needed to watch it again. This was, in my humble opinion, the best movie that came out in 1999. It's a shame it didn't get a broader release in the theatres, but I'm glad it came to my town.
There is something horrible and beautiful about nature, and this film shows that in a number of stunning ways. Man's treatment of nature is more horrible because it is not malicious but ignorant. While that comment might make the film sound preachy, it's anything but. It is personal and touching in ways that are difficult to express. We care about these characters, and they are real. No one here is truly evil, but their different attitudes and goals bring them into conflict. The lack of a villian might seem strange to mainstream American audiences, but it is a refreshing change of pace.
Everything about this movie is wonderful, the art, the plot, the characters, the voices, the music. The DVD is especially nice because it includes the original Japenese language tracks and subtitles, so those who are interested in purity of anime will be happy as well.
