Spirited Away ( Blu-ray )

Animation visionary Hayao Miyazaki gets to fully unlock his boundless imagination through the otherworldly adventures of an innocent young girl that immediately recalls Alice in Wonderland, yet is distinctly Japanese in flavour and setting and a mythological masterpiece in its own right. His wide-eyed heroine is spirited away to an opulently drawn dimension where a tyrannical old maid governs a palatial hotel catering to Gods and (mostly kindly) spirits of all shapes and sizes - insect drones, dragon-boys, gargantuan babies, slime monsters, and other amazing creations. Too grotesque for small children, but a mesmerizing must-see for fantasy fans of all other ages.
