Miyazaki, reviews

OK, folks, by popular demand (I guess), I will begin posting reviews to the
KineJapan site, until someone comes up with a better idea. My own was to
post reviews to the Digital Ramen site, but our web master died in a
traffic accident last summer and the site is currently inactive. 

One other announcement in response to a query on Miyazaki Hayao:
Miramax/Hyperion has just published my translation of "Princess Mononoke --
The Art and Making of Japan's Most Popular Film of All Time" (What a
mouthful!) --  the English-language version of the Studio Ghibli art book
on PM. I also wrote an introduction that critiques the movie and summarizes
Miyazaki's career and the films of Studio Ghibli. They did a beautiful job
with the illustrations -- the book was printed in Tokyo, by the same
printer that does the Japanese-language SG books -- but an unseen editorial
hand revised my translations of Miyazaki's poems for the film, trashing
several of them (and improving several others?). Everything else is mine,
for better or worse.
