"For years considered the rising star of Japanese animation, Makoto Shinkai has more than arrived today as a consummate genius of the form and the auteur behind the highest-grossing anime of all-time, 2016’s Your Name. His humanist cinema combines the spirit of Ozu with an expansive, cosmic sense of scale in narratives that merge aspects of the intimate and the astral—the sky has a starring role in every film—using groundbreaking animation to convey and capture the beauty and follies of contemporary urban life, while returning repeatedly to tales of star-crossed lovers and narrowly missed connections complicated by time and tide. Metrograph’s survey of Shinkai’s films is his first-ever North American retrospective, but undoubtedly won’t be his last."—Metrograph
