    1. It was valid for me. Even while watching the film, I was disappointed that the dreams weren't more... dreamlike.

    2. I don't think that, say, shooting an action sequence in something like the crazy wrap-around Paris would have affected the movie's "mainstream appeal". I reckon it would have enhanced the appeal! "Here's something familiar - a gun battle - in a way you've NEVER SEEN BEFORE"

    If he did make a conscious decision to limit that to broaden the appeal... well, ok. But it was most certainly a wrong decision.

    As I said, I don't disagree with you. I'd love to see a braver use of the idea.

    This seems to be considered one of the weaker Studio Ghibli films, but as far as I'm concerned it was perfect. Emotional, gorgeous looking, funny and interesting from beginning to end. A great story about, essentially, the end of a world.
