January 4th, 2014: Castle of Cagliostro

Castle of Cagliostro

What It’s About:  Lupin (Yasuo Yamada) must save a beautiful young woman from a duplicitous count while on the trail of expert counterfeiters.

Why Watch it Today?:  Even an internationally recognized master like Hayao Miyazaki (born on this date in 1941) has to start some where, and Miyazakai started with this wonderfully convoluted feature film of the long running Lupin III series.

Other Choices:  Ponyo
