10. Princess Raccoon (オペレッタ狸御殿) 
Film made o-matsuri.
I caught up with a lot of non-American non-Indian musicals this year because of this post. The film is a challenge to sit through for a number of reasons— first, it’s set up more as a play or opera (the film’s original title translates to “the operetta of Princess Raccoon“) than a film. Then, the music -by Michiru Oshima and Ryomei Shirai- has little to no pop hooks, solely focusing on the “folk” aspect of the tale itself, the aesthetics, and the “Japanese-ness” of it all.
In short, that’s what sets it apart.
9. Alamar [Trailer]
8. Muriel’s Wedding
Since I’ve met you and moved to Sydney… I haven’t listened to one ABBA song. It’s because now my life’s as good as an ABBA song. It’s as good as Dancing Queen.
7. The Iron Giant
Can’t really stop watching a movie that starts with “impregnation by Italian tomato.”
