    Howl's Moving Castle

    WARNING THE FOLLOWING TAKE IS VERY PRECIOUS AND OVER-CLEVER AND PROBABLY EVERYONE ALREADY HAD IT WHEN THE MOVIE CAME OUT 16 YEARS AGO BUT I GOTTA GET THIS OUT OF ME BEFORE I CAN WRITE THE REST:

    The titular castle of Howl's Moving Castle is synecdoche for the film itself: a beautiful, shambling mess of disparate-yet-gorgeous elements, hurrying everywhere but never really getting anywhere, borne onward by its shifting, clanking momentum before finally collapsing under its own weight.

    OKAY WE'RE…

    One time I was hanging out with a guy and a girl and I mentioned hating this movie, specifically saying that it felt like a dream about homework. The guy put the movie on I think as a power move but then the other two of us just fell asleep. Later he texted me to tell me he thought it was "nuanced."

    Every time we see the trailer for this in theaters I hold up my hands and start counting every time they say "dad" or "boys" and I always run out of fingers before I run out of trailer. I have not seen the film in question.
