The Wind Rises is gorgeous filmmaking from one of the greatest animators of all time.
August 7, 2019
With a remarkable plastic beauty, everything that frames the action of 'The Wind Rises' is of an overwhelming visual virtuosity. [Full Review in Spanish]

Miyazaki is a master, and The Wind Rises is a tender, loving farewell to a truly glorious career.
June 11, 2019
Like its protagonist, and its auteur, these are tender and gentle brushes of exquisite genius.

It does have a lot of really lovely sequences.

Miyazaki's swansong is every bit as masterful as Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle, tempered only by a bittersweet sadness which runs throughout.
February 22, 2019
I don't doubt the sincerity of Miyazaki's pacifism but I'm appalled by his abstract vision. Like, how many tens or hundreds of thousands of real people in Asia and the Pacific were de-animated thanks to [Jiro] Horikoshi's dreams?

If The Wind Rises is indeed Miyazaki's last hurrah, he goes out on a graceful, all-encompassing note.
September 5, 2017
A beautiful--and now Oscar-nominated--swan song from Miyazaki, The Wind Rises is a breathtaking ode to what is and what could be.
July 14, 2016
In The Wind Rises as elsewhere, Miyazaki's artistry is undeniable, but the storytelling is flabby.
June 21, 2016
There's great humanity and great drama spread throughout, but all of it is given the careful, illuminating gleam of a dreamer's gaze.
June 14, 2016
The Wind Rises abstracts its own historical fabric by focussing on the tiny space between the stitches - on its psychological portrait and romantic plot.
March 21, 2016
Although the pacing of the film is odd, the images are gorgeous, and they say more than the dialogue.
