    I have loved every movie I have seen by Hayao Miyazaki, one of Japan's most beloved animators. I think every human on the planet would enjoy these beautiful intelligent films with heart, soul, music.



    Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Caste, Princess Mononoke and others are well known. This video describes some Studio Ghibli films usually undiscovered...



    Here are the trailers for some of my favorites. I prefer seeing the Japanese with subtitles but many have been dubbed in English.

    I am remembering this movie today. It is a road movie steeped in magical realism..... "Pow Wow Highway". I fell in love with Philbert.

    "Philbert Bono (Farmer) is a hulk of a man guided by sacred visions. He wants to find his medicine, tokens from the spirits. He trades some marijuana, booze, and a few bucks for his 'war pony' – a rusted out, beat up 1964 Buick Wildcat he names 'Protector.' Meanwhile, Buddy's estranged sister, Bonnie, is arrested in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Buddy is the only family member who can help her and her children..... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powwow_Highway"

    I love Spirited Away. Not sure if it fits, but the other one I watched a lot of around when that came out was "Waking Life". This one seems a little chicky of a flick, I liked it:



    And JT was almost as dreamy Ethan Hawke in "In Time"...

    All these great films are about how we feel, or something we feel about, or learning to feel so emotionally touching?
    Chick Flick is not the best wording.....can't seem to think of the way to express the sentiment in a "trite phrase"
    Maybe "Feel Flicks" OR as trite as Chick Flick is "Sci Fi/ Fantasy Adult Guy Cry" (hehe)

    Frank Capra as tuned in by the Coen Brothers is chick and guy fantasy (more funny than not) and timely IMO. "The Hudsucker Proxy 1994" ...a small-town rube in the big city; the fast-talking dame who can't help loving him; the evil plot of greedy corporate thugs ;rags-to-riches, and all of it in a beautiful stylish postmodern New York.

    Thanks Donk for the recommendations.
    I remember Waking Life and loved it when I saw it before!



    And for some reason, Waking life stimulated Recall of this movie....Totally action movie but with insane mind games.

    Identity, surveillance and deception in a near-future dystopia constantly under intrusive high-technology police surveillance in the midst of a drug addiction epidemic. The war on drugs has been lost, and when a reluctant undercover cop is ordered to spy on those he is closest to, the toll that the mission takes on his sanity is too great to comprehend....

    You recognized the alt media super-star that appears in both of the roto-scoped movies (Waking Life and Scanner Darkly), right?
