Cinema with Cyrus: Episode 31 - The Miyazaki Special

Hayoa Miyazaki is frankly one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. With his standalone feature films being put onto Nextflix recently, it was time I dedicated a whole episode to discussing this master of cinema and his work. In this episode I talk about his wider themes and what makes his films so unique, alongside a brief discussion of each of his films specifically. Enjoy.
