Wings of Honneamise

One of the early, early GAINAX films, it's sort of a ripoff of 2001 - A Space Odyssey, actually, but it's still pretty good. It's about a guy who is part of the military in a country that's attempting to join the Space Race (seems relatively early on in the 20th century, but I don't think a concrete time or place is ever stated; if anything, everything is off enough that it's all Parellel Universe, but whatever, it's sorta steampunkish and that's all you need to know on that front). He ends up befriending a woman and her creepy, creepy child, and then goes into space and it all goes all Star Child. It's pretty good, really, but not the best thing on earth. It's pretty intersting, and Ryuichi Sakamoto did the score for it, and that's actually pretty awesome.
