Now here was another film. If you stay true to joy and astonishment and empathy you don't have to have violence and you don't have to have action. If you just have non-stop action with no breathing space at all, it's just busyness, But if you take a moment, then the tension building in the film can grow into a wider dimension. Each character was given so much personality, even the little soot spiders weren't treated as two-dimensional.
The most obvious one is the Grim Reaper, but I also think clowns could possibly come from the same originative image. The design work of the film, from Totoro and the other magical creatures to the amazing Catbus, is second to none, simple and daintily surreal.
