“Ugh, I smell like a human!”
Princess Mononoke (subtitled) plays midnights this weekend (September 8th and 9th) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series. The English-dubbed version will screen Saturday September 9th at 11:30am
Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke (1997) is reportedly a delightful anime from the man who has come to define everything that is best about the genre, I’ve never seen it, but Miyazaki always brings in the crowds for the midnight shows so I’m sure it’s a worthy choice. Princess Mononoke was Miyazaki’s calling card to the world outside Japan. The English voice cast boasts Billy Crudup, Billy Bob Thornton, Minnie Driver, Claire Danes, Jada Pinkett Smith, Gillan Anderson and Keith David – a considerable volume of talent for an animation back in 1997 (Toy Story was 1995), arguably marking the beginning of another trend – for big names to be heard and not seen.
