Kiki's Delivery Service

Kiki's Delivery Service ★★★★★


When I first watched this I claimed it was the greatest movie I had ever seen, but...I feel like that was a pretty hyperbolic and false statement. First, I doubt anything will ever top Mulholland Drive as the “best” movie I’ve ever seen. There’s a lot that Kiki’s Delivery Service doesn’t too in terms of quality from what I can tell, including Spirited Away, that’s clearly the best Ghibli movie, we all know it. I didn’t lower it too far on my favourites list if you’re one of my readers who bothers to check (and I know some of you do, I’m grateful) because I still think it’s very well made and sweet and cute and funny. But I’ve never been more stunned by a movie than Mulholland Drive and that really forced me to reconsider this film’s placement.
