Nausicaa of the Valley of the Winds

Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli may be in its final days (or not, depending on how its latest film The Borrower Arrietty fares with Western audiences), but you can celebrate the wonder of the anime master’s work by watching his early masterpiece Nausicaa of the Valley of the Winds online — free and legal, courtesy of Google Video.

It’s a sprawling, post-apocalyptic epic about a young princess caught up in the never-ending war between nature and civilization — and well worth your time.
