Fantastic Planet ★★★★

Part of the joy of watching Fantastic Planet is how completely different it is. I especially love the unique animation and production design created by Roland Topor. It was made using cutout stop motion animation, a technique I haven’t often seen. I really like the vibrancy of the colors and the way the sketches move on top of the backgrounds. There’s surprising depth to the images given this style.I suppose when you see as many animated films as I do it’s refreshing to see something so different. I also really like the music by Alain Goraguer, which is psychedelic and strange without being overbearing.
