Posters - Howl's Moving Castle


Another one of the great Studio Ghibli posters. It also happens to be one of my absolute favorite Miyazaki films. It's a spectacular showcase of color and detail, a wonderful bit of expressionism.

Howl is a film that baffles a lot of Westerners, particularly those who aren't as knowledgeable about Miyazaki as your typical Ghibli Freak. But I continue to insist that it's a spectacular movie, loaded with at least three pictures' worth of story in its two-hour length. It's certainly the most densely-packed of Miyazaki's films. No question about that. But it rewards your dedication. It's like the Beatles' White Album brought to the screen.

Generally Howl is an alright film, but I think this is actually one of it's major flaws. I could tell watching it that there was a lot more to the story than what was up on screen.
