Failure of an animation genius also happens.

“Laputa Castle in the Sky”

By the way, just so you understand how brilliant Miyazaki is, the rating on Kinopoisk for the anime is 8.3. Nevertheless, it is called the worst of the creator, and for good reason. Yes, the cartoon has a fascinating and adventurous plot, but on the other hand, the island of Laputa is the ruins of a civilization that was once developed and advanced. This makes the viewer feel sad and think about one’s ability to destroy oneself and destroy ‘others’.

And it is as if the creator failed to combine a light and “applied” adventure story with his philosophical and layered inventions. At the very moment when the heroes reach Laputa, the anime freezes, the plot slows down and begins the systematic revelation of the meanings embedded in it, and this is just, well, how to say, a noticeable pause. And the viewer, having already caught the action, wants more, and more. And we “still” can’t wait for this.

“Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro”

Here the rating is already less impressive, a 7.7. But this is Miyazaki’s first work as a director, and it’s not that it came out lumpy, but inexperience had a big influence on the execution. “The Castle of Cagliostro” is a very clear and simple film, it is not a layered story full of meanings and mysteries. This is an anime about a robbery and… nothing else.

In his subsequent works, Miyazaki obviously developed a very different style. However, the film still proved to be of high quality, solid, interesting and incredibly beautiful, just like all the other anime of the director.

“The Boy and the Bird”

This hour, The Boy and the Bird is Miyazaki’s latest project. And this is the essence of the director’s hits. Here is a story about war trauma, and it addresses global environmental issues, as in ‘Princess Mononoke’, but also the adventures of a child who went to the other world (we saw this in ‘Totoro’ and ‘Spirited Away’).

Therefore, the image does not seem authentic and separate, but secondary. Because of the flair of Miyazaki’s previous enchanting works. Nevertheless, the anime is full of interesting plot twists and typical author’s reasoning, but it still ended up in the anti-rating.
