Grave of the Fireflies. (火垂るの墓, Hotaru no Haka).
One of Roger Ebert's top films (of any kind, not just anime). Ernest Rister says "it is the most profoundly human animated film I've ever seen." A touching story about two children in 1940's Japan, this movie will take your heart, rip it out and then jump up and down on it. It is still an excellent movie. My favorite anime movie, period.
Serial Experiments Lain
This one's an anime miniseries, not a movie, but it's a great watch. Strange doesn't even begin to describe this one. High tech conspiracies abound after a schoolgirl gets a mysterious email.
Kiki's Delivery Service
Good character development and loads of charm. A very young witch has to learn how to live away from home at the age of thirteen even if she isn't that skilled at witchcraft. If you're looking for intense non-stop action, you might want to pass--this movie's about how humans relate to each other.
Laputa: Castle in the Sky
Not an excellent movie, but still a very good one. There's a huge treasure in the sky and a huge struggle ensues to see who will control the floating castle. This movie has had a definite influence on later video games including Grandia I and Skies of Arcadia.
