Chris' Review of Hoshi o ou kodomo (Journey to Agartha) (Children Who Chase Lost Voices)
There are a few hiccups in this movie, but for what it is I liked it. It has some creative visuals, some good characters (save for the main protagonist which I've felt it wasn't focused on her enough for me to care), and has a great theme of life and death. However in order for this movie to work perfectly, it could have told a simpler story or just make it like similar to Pan's Labyrinth and end it tragically (which they did, but nobody dies). But that's just me. What works well works unbelievably well.
