An audience with Miyazaki, Japan's animation king | The Japan Times Online
For those who have seen any of Miyazaki's films, this interview is of interest.
(I'm not sure which of his films I would recommend to a new comer to his work. Spirited Away was good, but as with many of his later films, it does become a bit of a narrative jumble as it goes on. I think the simpler story lines of Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service make for a better introduction.)
