Satire
Fairy tales have always been an interesting subject of discussion. Is there some sort of premise or bits of realistic semblance behind these mysterious tales or were they simply crafted as a thrilling form of entertainment for our wandering imaginations? Little Red Riding Hood is a classic tale that most have been exposed to, most likely in their adolescence. Whether it be the actual source material or some other variation the story stays relatively linear.

Recommendations

Same director, similiar plot trops, very detailed graphics, similiar atmosphere.
The Sky Crawlers and Jin-Roh have very deep an intricate plots, drama, love, and of course talking. There are both great action scenes in both movies. Both movies are made by Production I.G., also, so they share a similar art style. (one little easter egg: there is actually a character in The Sky Crawlers named Jinroh)

Opening Theme

"Jin-Roh - Main Theme" by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra

Ending Theme

"Grace - Jin-Roh - Main Theme - Omega" by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra
