Fantastic Planet (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Criterion Collection Model: 35357493
Nothing else has ever looked or felt like director RenÃ© Laloux s animated marvel Fantastic Planet, a politically minded and visually inventive work of science fiction. The film is set on a distant planet called Ygam, where enslaved humans (Oms) are the playthings of giant blue natives (Draags). After Terr, kept as a pet since infancy, escapes from his gigantic child captor, he is swept up by a band of radical fellow Oms who are resisting the Draags oppression and violence. With its eerie, coolly surreal cutout animation by Roland Topor; brilliant psychedelic jazz score by Alain Goraguer; and wondrous creatures and landscapes, this Cannes-awarded 1973 counterculture classic is a perennially compelling statement against conformity and violence.BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES - New, restored 4K digital transfer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack- Alternate English-language soundtrack- Les escargots (1966), an early short film by director RenÃ© Laloux and illustrator Roland Topor- Laloux sauvage, a 2009 documentary on Laloux- Italiques: Roland Topor Special, a 1974 French television program on Topor s work- Archival interviews- Trailer- New English subtitle translation- PLUS: An essay by critic Michael Brooke
