Second one is really a tough decision... For now, The Pianist, but i'm almost certain if i rewatched Spirited Away, i would prefer that one. It's quite close, and The Pianist biggest advantage is i've seen it more recently than Spirited Away, while I have to seem to appreciate Ghibli's movies more in later years than 5 years ago (when Spirited Away was one of my first Ghibli's). Or it's possible i still would think it's one of the weaker Ghibli's and that my earlier vision was more correct, but I doubt it. I expect i'll like it more, and i've forgotten a lot from it, so it definitely needs to be rewatched.

I'd take either in the top pair over either in the bottom pair, but all are good films that I'd watch again.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!
