Fantastic Planet Criterion Collection

The best art makes you feel like you're on drugs without doing drugs. French Fantastic Planet is a prime example of psychoactive film, featuring Dalí-esque surrealism, masterful cutout stop-motion animation, and a cosmic jazz soundtrack. The downside? Finding a copy of the movie at a reasonable price is basically impossible. Until today, that is. Criterion have restored the film, re-translated the English subtitles, short films by the same director and illustrator, two documentaries, an interview with the illustrator, and the original movie trailer. For $28 for the Blu-ray or $23 for the DVD, it sounds like a steal to me. Watch the original trailer below and grab your copy on Amazon.
