The Totoro thing was sort of bull. He's not a good luck charm...he just hangs from my rear-view mirror in my car. But I was desperate enough for interview anecdotes that I just stuck him in my suit pocket that one time.

Totoro's great, but I'd say my favorite Ghibli is Spirited Away (but it's only by a nose, just ahead of Mononoke or Kiki's).

I think Naussica and Mononoke are on equal footing for his greatest accomplishments. It takes a great filmmaker to revisit the EXACT same themes more than a decade later, essentially remaking the same film in a different setting, and leave neither film looking inferior to the other. Both those films are unforgettable, and it's so refreshing in cinema to see a moderate as the hero.

I'm also happy to see that the great Ken Jennings is a Miyazaki fan.
