Fantastic Planet ★★★★

Film Club #23

I’m struggling to come up with what to say about this movie. I think I liked it. I think I would like it better if I had been high. The animation is unlike anything I’ve ever seen and I was actually really into the style. It felt like a book and I thought that was cool. 

There’s so much to unpack in the story and the struggles between the Oms and Draags. I think there’s a lot you can take away from it and examine. Oppressed groups fighting against their oppressors? Animal cruelty? It’s a really interesting sci-fi story. 

The visuals are really surreal and kind of feel like a nightmare that you’re trying to recall from the night before. I was into it. I also love the tight runtime. The story was really solid and perfectly paced.
