"To see THE WIND RISES is to simultaneously marvel at the work of a master and regret that this film is likely his last." - 11/07/2014 Los Angeles Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "Hayao Miyazaki's THE WIND RISES has a wistful quality that is at once contemplative and nostalgic..." - 11/14/2013 USA Today

"Seamlessly transitioning from the lush surfaces of the real world to an equally tactile, emotionally fraught realm of imagination, this new film -- reportedly Miyazaki’s last -- joins aesthetic ruminations with moments of gravity-defying fantasy..." - 02/24/2014 Film Comment


4 stars out of 5 -- "[Miyazaki's] most adult and interesting, and never less than visually breathtaking throughout." - 05/02/2014 Empire
