Nausicaš is in some ways a grim and serious film, but it mixes a sweet optimism into its horror-filled lessons.

It's gorgeous and strange, but Miyazaki's later films cover the same ground with greater refinement.

Miyazaki's instincts take over from time to time in the film's rare quiet moments, but overall it's awfully preachy and wearying.
