Hayao Miyazaki's most well-known film belatedly comes to Blu-ray with one of the strongest A/V transfers afforded to a Studio Ghibli film.

Western audiences will recognize in this "little girl lost" movie a number of similarities to Baum's Wizard of Oz and Carroll's Alice in Wonderland

Anime fetishists would probably want the feature rich two-disc set instead . . .

'Spirited Away' will be a revelation -- and a test -- for mainstream viewers. At times, the film appears better suited for the Ecstasy crowd than the Nickelodeon generation.

It is a wild Alice in Wonderland type of tale, filled to the brim with creative creatures.

[Simple] plot synopsis cannot convey the extraordinary texture of Hayao Miyazaki's latest, and perhaps most sophisticated, masterpiece.

Miyazaki's Spirited Away is captivating in its childlike innocence and engrossing in its rather basic artwork.

[I]t appears that Disney is finally figuring out that perhaps anime can deserve some features. Fans of Miyazaki or the film will probably want to own this disc.
