Howl's Moving Castle (2004) by Hayao Miyazaki (Dir.)
Review by Rogan Marshall

From official release/information:

Again, for unknown reasons, Disney is trying to fly an instant classic from the foreign market under the radar. While they've done a pretty good job with Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki's back catalog on American DVD, his latest, Howl’s Moving Castle – a huge hit worldwide – only earned a limited theatrical release here, which was a drastic error in judgment to begin with, and now it's coming out so quietly on home video, you might completely miss it. This, despite the amazing roster of voice talents they assembled for the English version – apparently, at Disney, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. (If the Disney studio were driving a car, it would probably be the kind of driver who accelerates toward yellow lights, and then violently brakes at the last second.)
