Age: 82
Country of Origin: Japan
Top Films: My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle

For me, a great movie must define the universe it is creating… and then follow the rules of that universe. Hiyao Miyazaki invents spectacular worlds, and each is gorgeous, provocative, utterly strange, and yet still familiar. I want to visit all of them (and maybe have, in my dreams). And: he’s one of history’s greatest visual artists.
