Watch: Robbie Collin Discusses the Unique Aesthetic of Ghibli's Films

Studio Ghibli

"So much of what makes Ghibli, Ghibli comes down to the way their films wriggle into the space between cultures… they feel both familiar and strange." It's always a good time to revisit Studio Ghibli films. Film journalist/critic Robbie Collin has put together a short video essay discussing the aesthetic of Ghibli films - focusing on how they mix east and west style to create something completely unique (and wonderful). I'm always up for watching anyone praise Ghibli films and analyzing what makes them so magical, and Robbie looks back at their origins to figure out where it all came from. Worth a watch. This just makes me want to settle in and spend all weekend rewatching Ghibli films, and catching up on a few of the classics I haven't seen yet - like the cool 1968 animated film The Little Norse Prince Valiant referenced in here. Watch below.
