It races along with the speed of a bullet train, visiting weird, enchanted places the likes of which have never been seen before.

Miyazaki confía en la inteligencia del público y en su capacidad de asombro, y ambas cosas las pone a prueba constantemente en este viaje extraordinario donde todo, cualquier cosa, puede pasar en cualquier momento.

Even if CG cartoons come to dominate Japan as they do much of the world, there's a corner of the animation field that will be forever Miyazaki.

One of the most impressive animated features of this year, or any other.

Spirited Away transcends masterpiece status. Composed of layer upon layer, it creates its own terminology.

Can at best be described as a surreal blend of Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz

É como se David Lynch tivesse dirigido sua própria versão de Alice no País das Maravilhas.

To call this film inventive is to grossly understate its accomplishment.

What separates Miyazaki's animation from everyone else's is the way he imagines his worlds.

I could hardly wait for the next plot twist or astonishing set piece, not to mention what visual magic Miyazaki still had up his sleeve (and he has plenty!).

Yes, Spirited Away is a triumph of imagination, but it's also a failure of storytelling.

...its visual style is remarkably beauteous and its creative touches abundantly imaginative.

Much of what makes the film work lies in the combination of its small touches and emotionalism, making it something more than a film for people who like to get stoned and go watch freaky animation (though it almost certainly works on that level, too).

The most enchanting thing about Miyazaki's work is his desire to do just that -- enchant.
