Movie Review: ‘The Wind Rises’

Play

The dreaded day has finally arrived; the day that one of the greatest living storytellers hangs up his brushes. Hayao Miyazaki, who brought the world such unforgettable creations as My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away has retired. But as a farewell, he has left us with one last parting gift, the historical fable of a young man with dreams of flight, The Wind Rises.

And did I mention he’s designing Japanese fighter planes during WWII?

Okay, so, awkward.

But still, the master speaks and the Unusual Suspects will listen. Now YOU listen and hear what Elliott, Chris, Ashley and Beau have to say about it.
