This is the one of his that I've seen that really does not work for me at all. I almost fell asleep in the theater iirc.

This movie has always been a whimsical train wreck for me. I initially assumed it was his last since it indicated a weird loss of perspective and economy in his work, though he mostly recovered with Ponyo. Even that last film feels like a shadow of his previous work, though. I wasn't very surprised when he eventually announced his retirement and I still have misgivings about his surprise "return."

Our wood stove is named "Calcifer".

Good commentary.

It's been a little while, but reading the book this is based on i seem to remember answers some of the questions. Which doesn't excuse the film - although I must say I always enjoy films where everything is not explained. Where does Howl go? Well, in the book it turns out he also lives as a teenage boy. In Wales. Yeah.
