God of Anime

For the first time in 10 years, Hayao Miyazaki has agreed to an interview. In a rare interview, he talks to Xan Brooks about life, universe and everything.

From the article:
There is a rumour that when Harvey Weinstein was charged with handling the US release of Princess Mononoke, Miyazaki sent him a samurai sword in the post. Attached to the blade was a stark message: "No cuts."

Saw some three films of Miyazaki about an year back. Fell in love with the rural Japan as portrayed in his films. The fantasy, the greenery and the absolute magic of the country side comes alive in his animation.

Thanks for reminding me of him. Need to ask if anyone still has his movies...

Chand Man,

I have got his Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke. Hopefully, by next week, I shall also have Howl's Moving Castle. Feel free to borrow from me, when you are in Mumbai. :)

Cheers,
D.
