There are plenty of cinematic touchstones for which Your Name is comparable, but the end result still feels like the rarest find of all: a truly original work of mainstream cinema.

There's a beautiful story that shines through. The film leads with comedy but then pulsates with adventure and tension in the second half.

Your Name is Makoto Shinkai's most satisfying and complete film to date thanks to its amazingly beautiful animation, a fun yet familiar sci-fi premise, a great melding of genres (sci-fi, romance and disaster movie?) and great vocal talent.

Even with its over-elaborate nature and the syrupy resolution, Your Name is really fun to watch, and takes more risks than I would have expected it to.

Plot hiccups aside, it's a visually impressive experience with endearing characters and a unique story.

Your Name is [a] mixed bag of bravura style and exhausting storytelling... Despite these reservations, it's clear that Shinkai has created a singularly manic vision that dares to challenge what it means to remember.

Your Name may throw to many ideas at the wall, but it's an inventive, pristinely animated, emotionally resonant treat that reinforces Shinkai's undeniable talents.
October 18, 2017
The vital second half feels ponderous and over-blown, and the eventual explanation too complex for its own good.

The absolute very best kind of crowdpleaser, the kind that genuinely does seem to have a little something for everyone.

This is about as good as it gets.
