Nausicaa, just like all of the Miyazaki films, is breathtaking to behold on a visual level. It may not be as rock solid on an emotional one as his later works. Valley of the Wind is a thrilling, flawlessly animated and inarguable epic entry in anyone's Ghibli library.

Nausicäa is the prototypical Ghibli heroine: fierce, sweet, gentle, selfless and extremely competent. The setting is epic, with many awe-inspiring moments. I would bet that this was a heavy inspiration for the designers of the Final Fantasy series. Sure, animation and music maybe aren't at the studio's later level yet, but that is easily forgiven.

Early Miyazaki film is pretty to look at, but so ham-fisted in it's storytelling (with laughably bad expository-heavy dialogue) that it clunks along when it should be soaring; while it's heart is in the right place, it's eco conscious message is pretty simplistic and banal, and not very well developed. Watched with the 2005 Pixar voice cast (Lohman, Thurman etc.) who all seem to be phoning it in.

Cold War anxieties in Miy's political fantasy tale that influenced from Matrix to Avatar. Nausicaa only loses her pacifism when she sees her dad dead, ends up killing bunch of soldiers. Before and after, it's a princess who works and runs around saving people, nature and taking care of animals. Humanity destroyed earth and the planet created a protection - a gaze that exhales poison and vapor. God-Soldier as military sollution humanity uses to solve things through violence. Love cures.

While self-consciously trying to avoid setting up characters as good or evil, the narrative is ultimately still too mechanical and unsubtle. Ecological concerns and rudiments of animism in this case prove insufficient to avoid the theological conventionality that frequently attends sacrifice myths of this kind.

It was okay. Nicely drawn, a bit confusing, but with a child-like charm.
