Princess Mononoke

Fantastic anime movie with brilliant ambience. The storyline is a little murky, but much clearer in hindsight. The animation, scenery and sound all contributed wonderfully to the story. Having learnt quite a bit about various pantheons of spirits/gods, the similarity to the Irish legends struck me as very strange, but quietly amusing. Definately a fantastic 'must-see' movie, but certainly not a bouncy, happy one. It's taken me about 6 years to get around to seeing it, and I'm glad I waited. It's much more interesting with the knowledge I have gained over that time.
