It's also a measure of the movie that it can relate to kids without pandering to them or their parents, casually throwing weirdness our way without needing to explain it all, or leaving us feeling any need for explanation. American moviegoers who felt let down by the hype surrounding the Miramax dub of Miyazaki's more traditional Princess Mononoke should give him another shot. Unlike that film, Spirited Away is probably like nothing you've ever seen. In a cool world, it would be guaranteed not only the Best Animated Feature Oscar but Best Picture as well.
