It's also a measure of the movie that it can relate to kids without pandering to them or to their parents, casually throwing weirdness our way without needing to explain it all -- in fact, leaving us without any need for explanation. American moviegoers who felt let down by the hype surrounding the Miramax dub of Miyazaki's more traditional Princess Mononoke should give him another shot. Unlike that film, Spirited Away is probably like nothing you've ever seen before. In a cool world, it would be guaranteed not only the Best Animated Feature Oscar, but Best Picture as well.
