Oldtaku no Radio # 044 – Porco Rosso

 Porco from Porco Rosso staring at an oil lamp.

Take to the animated skies (and bars and secret beach hideouts and so much more) with Jared and Ink as they talk about Ghibli's 1992 feature, Porco Rosso. Directed by Hayao Miyazaki, this movie depicts a post-WWI man-turned-anthropomorphic pig – a war pilot-turned-deserter/bounty hunter. The movie, while warmly humorous throughout, tackles such issues as identity, war, and fascism. Listen in to find out how (and how effectively)!

Stream Porco Rosso on HBOmax.
Buy the movie via Rightstuff or Amazon.
