The six volume set of comic books is physically and intellectually beautiful. Whether you have seen the movie or not, these books are well worth tracking down even if you have to sit in a bookstore for hours reading them. The artwork by Otomo Kasuhiro is beautiful and precise, and the storyline is intricate and compelling. The movie is also worth watching, but, while exciting, the books have a greater depth and make the story come alive.
The first major anime movie in the US.
