"It's no surprise that the tall, spry jokey Jiro is a perfectionist, but the film's real allure is his obsession with simplicity..." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly "JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is as elegant and tasty as the splendid sushi prepared by the man in the title, and that is saying a lot."Los Angeles Times "[A] portrait of a master.

"To see THE WIND RISES is to simultaneously marvel at the work of a master and regret that this film is likely his last."Los Angeles Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "Hayao Miyazaki's THE WIND RISES has a wistful quality that is at once contemplative and nostalgic..."USA Today "Mr. Miyazaki remains enchanted with the idea of being airborne....Mr. Miyazakis lyrical chronicle of the inventors creative process and his poignant romance reminds us that staying aloft is a fraught endeavor."New York Times "As gorgeously animated as any of his previous movies, Wind has Miyazaki trading in his more fantastical impulses for contemplative, old-fashioned drama and period detail." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly "Sadly, Miyazaki recently announced his retirement, which means that THE WIND RISES will be his swan song....It features more than enough gorgeous imagery to make his loss feel acute."A.V. Club "THE WIND RISES gives us fascinating insights into the Japan of the 1930s..."Wall Street Journal "In Jiro's dreams, the sky is filled with airplanes, swooping and colorful, like big fanciful paper birds, or benevolent bright dragons, harmless and buoyant."Roger Ebert 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he delicacy and dazzle in the work of Miyazaki, 73, is to be treasured."Rolling Stone "Seamlessly transitioning from the lush surfaces of the real world to an equally tactile, emotionally fraught realm of imagination, this new film -- reportedly Miyazakis last -- joins aesthetic ruminations with moments of gravity-defying fantasy..."Film Comment 4 stars out of 5 -- "[Miyazaki's] most adult and interesting, and never less than visually breathtaking throughout."Empire "This is dense material to grapple with, but Miyazakis light-as-air animation rises to the task."Total Film0.4376729
