Grave of the Fireflies


Take this inoculation against warmongering. Think of Madeline Albright’s “price was worth it” quote, the US blockade of Iran, and the Israeli blockade of Gaza, then watch the autobiography-based Studio Ghibli anime Grave of the Fireflies in which a 5 year old girl slowly dies of malnutrition after her mother is napalmed to death by Curtis LeMay and company during our “Good War.”

Or at least read this great 4-star review by Roger Ebert.


One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
