Also: "Many of my movies have strong female leads--brave, self-sufficient girls that don't think twice about fighting for what they believe in with all their heart. They'll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a savior."

I saw this on Tumblr and loved it (though I didn't reblog it). I love this about Miyazaki's films, that there are almost never any straight-up evil characters. And I've always loved the line "See with eyes unclouded by hate" (and Ashitaka and Nausicaa are two of my heroes).

Just saw Nausicaa big-screen last night, and had this quote very much in mind.

Even the giant insects are neither evil (as one might expect) or good (which we sort of at first do expect), but something more complicated and real.
