The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness is SUCH a great little movie. I’d seen the a lot of the more popular posts from it going around before I watched it. Going in I thought it might be two hours of philosophical waxing by Hayao Miyazaki, and there is some of that, but really it’s more like two hours of him sitting at his desk, drawing, making the occasional quip. So it’s moments like the “Ghibli is going to fall apart” line that really stand out to me. It’s one of my favorite parts of the film. I feel that a lot of people revere Miyazaki and Ghibli to the point where everything he says needs to be turned into inspirational typography quotes or framed as words of wisdom from the god of animation, so those words and that scene really carry a lot of weight. Floating around as a photoset it’s framed as a sad thing. But when you actually watch the scene, it’s something of a casual, unworried response. It’s chill. And that to me gives it more meaning than it just being a grim 

I think a lot of Miyazaki fans will go into the film expecting to see a jolly old Willy Wonka-of-animation kind of old man. But having seen the film and seeing Miyazaki, a man I’ve respected and admired, my whole life, through the lens of the film’s director Mami Sunada, it’s pretty apparent that he’s just…. an old fella. I won’t claim to know the man but seeing him sit as his desk complaining about his workload is humbling in an odd way. He’s grumpy, and opinionated, and yes he’s brilliant and talented, but he says things that I definitely disagree with. At times he rambles about the state of humanity and others times he cracks jokes with his associates. He’s just a person, which isn’t news to anyone of course, but for so many people who love and admire his work it’s important to recognize that. He’s a talented man but he’s no better or worse than anyone else. He makes his films through honest hard work; by sitting down from 9 AM to 11 PM, panel by panel, page by page. Ghibli isn’t a dreamhouse with flowers growing on the floor and whimsically-dressed animators making films to rustic Joe Hisaishi tunes. It’s a lot of people, honest, simple people, doing what Miyazaki does; sitting around silently and getting crap done. I love that. Young fans need to see that

Maybe the film will shatter some people’s perception of Miyazaki and his studio, but to me it enhances it. It feels now like a place that actually exists on this plane of reality. It’s more accessible, and seeing how it’s run makes me respect the products it puts out even more. As an artist, do I want to work there someday? Not necessarily. I mean that’s a tall order. But I feel now that people like me have. That people like me could

A bit of the ways through the film there’s a scene where Miyazaki is animating a scene with an airplane. Watching him draw is astounding. The lines and curves emerge effortlessly from his pencil with very few motions. But in the scene he’s not pleased with how he’s drawing the airplane. He says he should maybe get a younger animator to do it. As he walks home that night he complains that he wasn’t at 100 percent, but he’ll start again tomorrow. Seeing someone that brilliant, that legendary, go through the simplest of artistic quandaries is actually more enlightening than watching him draw. Because I’ve been there. Everyone has. Being able to relate to someone you admire is ten times more inspirational than feeling you’ll never come close to them

Please watch The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness. It’s required watching for any artist, no matter what you may think of Miyazaki, Ghibli, or animation in general
