Fantastic Planet

It is so difficult to concentrate on work while browsing YouTube. Few minutes ago I found these amazing videos from an animated science fiction film called Fantastic Planet (the English title of La Planète sauvage - literally "The Savage Planet"). This 1973 film is directed by René Laloux. The film was an international production between France and Czechoslovakia. It won the special jury prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1973. The film depicts a future in which human beings, known as "Oms" have been brought by the giant Draags to the Draags' home planet, where they are kept as pets (with collars). The Draags are an alien race which is humanoid in shape but ten times larger than humans, with blue skin, fanlike earlobes and huge, protruding eyes which they theat Oms like pets if domesticated , unless they are been exterminated... check more here

It's only one of the greatest films of all time. A true masterpiece. I have it on VHS. Visuals are way ahead of their time. I saw it once in the early 70's as a child, then I found it in a sale bin at a video store in 2001 for like seven bucks. It is much better if you watch it when you're high. I believe it was the directors intention for this film to be viewed under the influence of THC. But maybe it's just me.
