Hey cat, saw this post pop up in my RSS feed. Really enjoyed this post. You could have thrown in some honorable mentions, but that really isn't a top 10.
Great list, I think mine would also include Spirited Away and Akira.Two of my favorite animated films would have to be Angel's Egg, and Heavy Traffic by Ralph Bakshi. I saw both of them as a pretty young kid, I remember Angel's Egg scaring the hell outta me, I had never seen anything so dark. And Heavy Traffic.....that movie was like a ton of bricks falling on my head, like "THIS is what cool is". The animation isn't even close to the level of the films on your list, but the whole spirit of it really blew my mind. I saw it on late night HBO at a friend's house, and it was sexual and east coast and racist and he killed God with a shotgun. Doesn't get much better than that.
