After falsely hinting at premature retirement like a rock star (which he essentially is, in Japan) following 2001's Spirited Away, Hayao Miyazaki got right back to work with this fantasy—about a boy wizard, a teenage girl transformed into a 90-year-old woman, a witch and a giant floating edifice—for Disney. The film, with its crazily diverse voiceover cast that includes Lauren Bacall, Josh Hutcherson, Christian Bale and Billy Crystal, celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. See a subtitled version as part of the Nuart's weekly late night series.
