Recommendations

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion
This recommendation is more based on a gut feeling than anything else. The Adolescence of Utena and End of Eva are both retellings of their respective series and in both cases the intense imagery coupled with a complex and heavily symbolical atmosphere create an utterly surreal environment that deconstructs itself at every turn. They share the same epic quality even as they delve deep into the human psyche, despite the fact that the plot may seem to vary considerably. In these movies the role of the individual in the world and the very nature of what these two entities may be is what truly is  read more

Anime: Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica Movie 3: Hangyaku no Monogatari
It's always been clear that Puella Magi Madoka Magica was influenced by Revolutionary Girl Utena. However, the movie takes this influence ten steps further. In both movies, the premise starts out simple enough. But as the movie progresses, the plot gets a lot deeper and darker. The amount of symbolism they sport is incredible. Nearly every aspect about them has some sort of hidden meaning that requires a lot of speculation and discussion to fully understand.

Anime: Paprika
Heavy on the symbolism and insane visuals, both are aesthetically pleasing and create a dreamlike world, with fresh character and background designs.

Anime: Redline
Great art, and plenty of creativity in both movies. The two best movies about race cars ever made.

Anime: Tenshi no Tamago
Both are filled with strongly symbolic and/or disturbing imagery.
The difference is the art style. Utena is pure eye-candy, while Angel's Egg is like a mixture between the gothic and the surreal.

Anime: Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo
Both anime deconstruct their respective genres, with Utena being a deconstruction of magical girl anime, and Evangelion being a deconstruction of mecha anime. Both have a teenage protagonist is placed in a new, unknown situation, and who holds the power to change the fate of the world. Both anime have a lot of metaphors and symbolism, as well as surreal imagery, which might confuse some watchers. Also, both have a similar tone and mood.

Girl-girl romances, or yuri. However not porn yuri, actual anime with fantastic stories and tensions.

Anime: Ice
Both are quite psychedelic postapocaliptical animes.

Both had quite a lot yuri but no real yuri plot.

Both had two quite similar female protagonists: rapier-wielding, brave and calm fighting heroine and smart or rather "soul-sensitive" but defenseless heroine.
