This one nails what life was during the time people thought of America as a really great place but in reality, it is rough living there. Not to mention this has an depressing feel to it as Fievel looks everywhere for his family nearly almost getting killed many times.

While having a simple plot, it works well due to the execution of the plot, the main leads are relatable, and the animation have a lot of details and emotion that makes everything work. Most of all, it never insults it's audience.

About Perfect Blue being "kind of like Black Swan in a way", that's not a coincidence. Darren Aronofsky bought the rights for Perfect Blue years ago, when he was doing Requiem for a Dream.

Nice list, but I'd add Satoshi Kon's Paprika and Tokyo Godfathers too. IMO everything Satoshi Kon (R.I.P.) did was for adults.

A lot of Japanese Anime movies age very well, and don't lose their emotional effectiveness.
