    Porco Rosso (score)
    From the 1992 Japanese animated film about an Italian World War I flying ace who, for a wartime misdeed, was transformed into an anthropomorphic pig. The flamboyant post-war story of Porco Rosso (Crimson Pig) battling air pirates is full of intrigue and romance, and the film’s diverse and lush soundtrack is one of the more rare Studio Ghibli scorings.
