Pop Culture Imports: Your Streaming Guide To Belle Director Mamoru Hosoda

This Friday, Mamoru Hosoda's latest film "Belle" hits theaters. While the anime auteur may not be a household name in the way of Hayao Miyazaki or even Makoto Shinkai (the director of global anime hit "Your Name,") he should be.

Essentially, he's trying t...
