Review of “The Power of the Single Shot” (1993)


Miyazaki Hayao (writer).

Read in Starting Point.

An essay on the LD release of Ikiru (1952).

Miyazaki confesses to loving Stalker (1979) after having seen only one third of it and wanting to see no more, which is a strange mix of superficial bougie culture (holding up classics without understanding them) and the hypersensitivy of Pom in Castle in the Sky (1986).
