Ep. 376: Spirited Away (2001)


How Have We Never Covered Spirited Away?? That's what you're asking us this week, as episode 376 is devoted to week two's champion, the beloved film from Hayao Miyazaki. We explore Spirited Away's run in the week two tournament, and the finals against Booksmart. But, you're not here for that, you're here for the analysis. This week, we dive into the story of Chihiro and the spirit world she finds herself trapped in. This week, as we put Spirited Away on the analysis table, we talk capitalism and consumption, ghost towns, ecological commentaries, the use of what Miyazaki calls "ma" and the slowing of the narrative, and much, much more. Week 3 is currently underway, so go join us on Twitter (@Good_Trash) to make your vote count!
