Glad you enjoyed it, and it sounds as though you really know your stuff – it’s amazing how certain ideas can be traced through such vast expanses of time thanks to the art that cultures left behind.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and stories – very much appreciated! @Ged, I suppose my profile pic doesn’t really make sense, lol. But yes, just as well I like birds.

No other film company does whimsicality so well. To be honest, I’ve been feeling a little impatient with Ghibli lately (spoilt of me, I know), but I quite like the sound of Only Yesterday.

Really thoughtful stuff – isn’t it funny that it is the more privileged nations in the world that specialise in ‘gritty cinema’ (thinking in particular here of Britain and Scandinavia), whereas nations with really massive class gaps tend to create happily-ever-after rom-coms and escapist action thrillers? Catharsis at work, perhaps?

Thanks again to all for leaving such insightful comments. @J. Brian, no hatred incited! I do have a wiggly writing style, I know. And @Ged, thanks for reminding me that I have Berger’s book on my shelf. It’s gathering dust and really I should read it again.

Many thanks for reading and leaving comments. I certainly get the chills from this kind of thing, Mike. And I think Mel’s question is definitely worth exploring.

I have yet to read any of these titles, so thanks for the recommendations. Especially looking forward to reading Stephen King’s Whisper. I thought King wasn’t for me until I read The Stand, which made me realise that he is a serious writer with some serious talent.
