Critic Reviews of "The Wind Rises"Chicago ReaderMarch 13, 2014
The film is one of the most rapturously beautiful that Miyazaki has made, and all the more unsettling because of it.GrantlandMarch 13, 2014
The pastel palette bespeaks a determined, almost demented lightness.Denver PostFebruary 28, 2014
At 73, Miyazaki's farewell is many things -- gorgeous, beckoning, compassionate. For better and worse, it soars above child's play.Detroit NewsFebruary 28, 2014
When Jiro dreams, "Wind" soars; when he comes down to earth, the film can feel a bit stiff and murky. But then, that may be the point.Philadelphia InquirerFebruary 28, 2014
The Wind Rises has the sweep and majesty of a Technicolor Hollywood classic.ReelViewsFebruary 27, 2014
In terms of tone, visual beauty, and storytelling, The Wind Rises represents Miyazaki at the apex of his abilities.Washington Free BeaconJuly 14, 2016
In The Wind Rises as elsewhere, Miyazaki's artistry is undeniable, but the storytelling is flabby.The Film StageJune 21, 2016
There's great humanity and great drama spread throughout, but all of it is given the careful, illuminating gleam of a dreamer's gaze.4:3June 14, 2016
The Wind Rises abstracts its own historical fabric by focussing on the tiny space between the stitches - on its psychological portrait and romantic plot.Jerusalem PostMarch 21, 2016
Although the pacing of the film is odd, the images are gorgeous, and they say more than the dialogue.Critic's NotebookOctober 08, 2015
"The Wind Rises" will mean the most to fans who've grown up watching Mr. Miyazaki's work. Think of it as your graduation present.eFilmCritic.comJuly 14, 2015
World-class animation, with obsessive attention lavished on the smallest, subtlest things
