Capsule Reviews Of Movies My Toddler Wanna Watch Over And Over: My Neighbor Totoro
There's never a scene where an adult disbelieves a kid that magical creatures live in the woods. Of COURSE there are forest spirits, the divine is just part of everyday life! It's a deeply Shinto worldview
Rewatching gives me nostalgia for when I got into anime, separate nostalgia for when I lived in rural Japan, AND it's about father-daughter relationships and now I'm sharing it with my daughter. So many FEELS!
