this scene always reminds me of what Roger Ebert said about loving the "gratuitous motion" in Miyazaki films.
it makes me think that excellent film-making exists to depict “gratuitous motion”, meaning: life. meaning lack of defined, rigid purposes in our movements. it’s all about our peculiar sense of time and the ways it can flow differently in different situations for different people.
most people have no problem coming up with a nice story. that’s not what defines good film-making, though.
