25. Hayao Miyazaki
SPIRITED AWAY, PONYO, MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO, PORCO ROSSO
Hayao Miyazaki is one of the few filmmakers who makes anime universal. It is hard not to get hyperbolic when discussing a filmmaker who is able to capture magic on film better than almost any other filmmaker. The first film I saw from this filmmaker was the recent, Howl’s Moving Castle, and from the first frame I knew I was witnessing something special and unique. Any fan of film, whether they like anime or not, must explore this filmmaker’s filmography and see some of the most imaginative and beautiful films to ever grace the screen.
