Kate’s Take Podcast

#7 Princess Mononoke

January 13, 2017

Kate continues Miyazaki month with Princess Mononoke. This episode is full of trivia on why it took this box-office recording breaking Japanese hit 2 years to come to the United States as well as taking deep diving on the themes of this mature movie. Themes in this episode are: infections of rage and hate, the whole damn world is cursed, two sides to every story, being small, stupid and worrying about your survival is a pre-curser to war, and not to fear the god of life and death.
