I've only seen Spirited Away and liked it a lot. I guess that's also his most famous one so it should be easy to find.

whats your fav miyazaki film? i've only seen mononoke and laputa... any recommendations for which one to see next?

That's a tough one. I have them all and have seen them more times than I can count. If you liked both of those then you would probably like Nausicaa, Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle, which are less cutsey then Totoro and Kiki.

I actually like possibly his least known work, Porco Rosso, which is about a pilot who has been transformed into a pig and becomes a flying bounty hunter in the Adriatic Sea. Its a good adventure film that doesn't seem to get its props.

EDIT - I don't mean to diminish Totoro and Kiki by calling them "cutsey" - they are both great films as well - they are just in a different vein from the others mentioned.

Before Sunrise

Before Sunset

i thought these were great too, i really liked the dialogues and how the sequel picked up 9 years after the first one both in real life and in the story. i also like how the two protagonists also co-wrote the screenplay for the sequel.

Yeah, the most naturalistic dialogue/performances ever.

You watch Before Sunset and don't even realize how incredible the acting is, because it just feels like you're watching a documentary or something with two people really talking.

Sigh...my two all time favorites.

Ten Canoes - May not have 'stood the test of time', and re-release reviews, but I'm convinced this is a future classic. Dancing, spears, Australia, canoes, penises, palimpsests... it's got it all.

Ashes and Diamonds - (This is by Andrzej Wajda, pronounced like Vader, but no relation to Darth.) Depicts the tragedy of the Warsaw Uprising. Also features a protagonist cooler than James Dean.

Celine et Julie

Mulholland Drive

Les Quatre Cents Coups
