This movie is so cool it just leaks excellence and class. With Gillian Anderson as the Wolf Queen it rocks. The animation is seemless and so complecated it makes you weep!! Anyone agree?...

Miyazaki loves his evil force being this oil like sludge in his films and in this one it takes on a worm like evil.
Both sides have evilness and both sides have goodness and Miyazaki creates a main character that doesn't really judge, but rather helps to solve the conflict, although he's constantly repressed by his curse.
This and Akira were the two anime films that scared me away from the genre and after being scared back in by Spirited Away , I can't say my thoughts on this one have changed since my last viewing more than a year ago.
