Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind ★★★★★

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is another masterful work from Hayao Miyazaki, presenting a story that truly hits you right in the feels. His take on a post-apocalyptic world covered by wastelands and a poisonous forest called Sea of Decay with giant insects inhabiting it is just so peculiar and wildly imaginative. I loved all the rich mythology involved and how Nausicaä has a genuinely powerful bond with the creatures as well as nature itself. She is such a kind, fierce and caring protagonist that you feel attached to the character right from the start. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind manages to deliver an incredible sense of awe while also having a beautiful and touching message so I could not recommend it highly enough!
