    Quantity:

    When the Wind Blows (1986) — writer Raymond Briggs’ adaptation of his own graphic novel, brought to the screen by director Jimmy T. Murakami — is an enchantingly collage-like animated film (featuring drawn, stop-motion, and live-action sequences) on a very grim subject, indeed:  the effects of nuclear holocaust on an ordinary English couple. James and Hilda Bloggs, (perfectly voiced by acting legends John Mills and Peggy Ashcroft) are a happy, near-elderly pair living in the lovely rural countryside when — seemingly out of nowhere — disaster beyond all imagining strikes.  Featuring a score by Roger Waters (late of Pink Floyd), with a title song from David Bowie and contributions from Genesis, Squeeze, and Paul Hardcastle.
