Review (57:57):

We review Studio Ghibli’s Whisper of the Heart (1995), a quiet, thoroughly charming portrait of adolescence with universal resonance directed by the late, great Yoshifumi Kondo.  Tune in for the full review!

Review (50:50):

A trigger happy, diaper wearing, soccer player with Yakuza connections goes looking for revenge; an old man lives inside the belly of a whale for thirty years with only a plesiosaur as company; the main character has a foot race against God Almighty and wins!  All of this and more are only to be found in Mind Game, a funny, imaginative, and wonderfully delightful film by animator turned director Masaaki Yuasa.
