“Tomm Moore’s Song of the Sea might have made a better video game than a motion picture. That’s saying something, because as motion pictures go, it’s an absolutely visceral stunner: you may find yourself wishing you could interact with its characters, live in its vividly realized world, participate in its defining ancestral conflicts. In fact, among 2014’s varied animated offerings, only Studio Ghibli’s The Tale of Princess Kaguya compares to Moore’s sophomore effort for the sheer, alluring magic of its storytelling. Why GKIDS, the film’s U.S. distributor, didn’t hustle to guarantee its theatrical run in the States before the annual onslaught of critics’ groups voting is, and always shall remain, a mystery.” – Via Paste Magazine
