Fantastic Planet ★★★

Film Club #23

Obviously the animation is absolutely stunning, building a very visually inventive sci-fi world. I guess I found all of the subject matter a little overwhelming, as there is so much going on that it felt a little hard to keep up with because my mind was working overtime trying to figure out what it all meant. It’s filled with so much political subtext that I definitely need to read up on, as well as other people’s interpretations of this film, which will probably make me appreciate it more. Definitely not bad, just a lot to take in and it will absolutely need a rewatch.
