Weathering with You

Weathering with You ★★★★½

Makoto Shinkai has a direct link to my emotions. This man just knows how to completely destroy me emotionally. I maintain that Shinkai's animation is the only one that comes close to Hayao Miyazaki's level of brilliance.

This has been a very tough week for me, maybe the worst I've ever had, so this movie was such a comfort. In a week in which I've very much been contemplating my own mortality, this film talks about the beauty of life and why it's so precious. It's been a while since a film has made me walk out of a theater with such a big smile on my face with tears simultaneously coming down my cheeks. This film would've been incredibly cheesy and hokey had it been made by anyone else. Thank you Makoto Shinkai.
