I’m sure I don’t need to tell any of you about the horror of the recent events in Japan, the news has been as unavoidable as it has been upsetting. As someone living here in the west (who also happens to have family and friends in Japan), it is also extremely frustrating – what can we do to help?
This is my original review of The Sky Crawlers, reposted to coincide with the film finally getting a release on Bluray and DVD – as well as a limited cinema run – here in the UK. Since I first reviewed it I’ve watched it countless times, and I must say with each viewing I’ve come to love it even more. In fact, it’s become one of my very favourite of Oshii’s works.
