Movie Spotlight: Porco Rosso
If you’ve never heard of Studio Ghibli, or Hayao Miyazaki, it’s not too late to see any of the films. Porco Rosso is an older anime film, released in 1992 in Japan, which was finally recently released in United States a few years ago with english voice-overs.
It’s a different kind of film, taking a dangerous and depressing time-period (World War I era) and turning it into a goofball of fun. The main character is Porco, a pilot.. and a pig. It’s definitely a great film, especially if you’re looking for something a little eccentric.
