Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind ★★★★★

Flight, but make it a concept simpler than falling asleep, infuse it with magic, such that everyone coming out of this movie feels like they do not belong anywhere other than above the clouds. The closest we can come to emulating this level of satisfaction from watching a movie so deeply inspiring and beautiful is by climbing to the peak of a mountain just in time to catch the sunset, or taking a nap after a long day of deep cleaning the entire apartment knowing there's no work tomorrow, it's enough to make one shed tears of joy, god miyazaki.
