I think I watched the Final Cut, it was one without Ford's voiceover narration and with the unicorn dream sequence.
Personally, I'm more of a fan of dark action-oriented anime, such as Cowboy Bebop, Gungrave, Akira, etc. but there's no denying that Miyazaki's work is brilliant. I also loved Grave of the Fireflies, surely Takahata's best work.
Not sure how many full-featured anime films/TV you've seen, but I'll recommend a few other films you might like. Perfect Blue is a psychological thriller about a Japanese pop star turned actress who becomes mentally unstable when a stalker disapproves of her career change. Patlabor 1 & 2 are excellent sci-fi films based off a popular anime series, which has its bleak political overtones. I also love Ninja Scroll, Samurai X: Trust & Betrayal (Director's Cut), and Vampire Hunter D & Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust.
Haven't seen too much anime, but I'll keep these in mind.
