(500) Films of Empire - Day 115

339 - Spirited Away - 5 stars
I absolutely adored this film.  There were high expectations because this was one of the very few films to break the almighty dominance of Pixar and win the Oscar for best animated film in 2003, but it delivered on every level.
The fantasy world where Chihiro becomes trapped and forced to work until she can figure out a way to release her parents is full of beautiful flourishes and is so perfectly realised that its as if Guillermo Del Toro got the chance to make an animated film.
Without a doubt one of the best animated films of all time.
