Episode Notes

A brand new journey begins. This multi-part exploration of Studio Ghibli and stop motion sends Double Feature on an adventure to further understand animation. In the first part, Spirited Away takes a unique look at the coming of age genre by secretly using it as an indictment of soul-crushing capitalism. Then, Isle of Dogs makes a postcard case for Japan’s mostly broadly understood culture and directs it squarely at Americans. Also, the film is kind of gross, right? No one says “I love dogs.” Mainstream audiences respond, but does the film get away with it?
