My Neighbor Totoro ★★★★★

I honestly don't know what just happened..

This film is about me, you, my childhood, my children, your children, your future children, my unborn child, your childhood, magic, love, family, innocence, nature, compassion and everything in between. It's about none of these things and it's about all of them.

But mostly it's about me.

And I'm having a really hard time describing how deep a chord this film struck. So I'll turn to my other passion, music, and let smarter people evoke the feeling it gave me (song is here).

Is this the best animated movie ever made? I don't know.

Is it the best animated movie I've ever seen? Without a shadow of a doubt.
