[Miyazaki] may have made better films than Howl's Moving Castle, but it still exhibits his amazing imagination and astonishing detail.
Derek Malcolm | London Evening Standard
A stunning example of a pure, disorienting dream logic that cinema provides all too rarely.
Joshua Rothkopf | Time Out
Palaces and shimmering lakes, warplanes and fire sprites all come to life at the breath of Miyazaki's graphic genius.
