Is it an allegory for how humans treat each other and animals, is it an allegory for the cold war, or is it just a great sci-fi story? Maybe it’s all three at once. In any event, Fantastic Planet released in 1973 is a bit of a cult film but one that deserves a wider audience. It’s just as relevant today as it was in the early 70’s. And the visuals and music are top notch. Very different and strange in some parts, but that just adds to the alien feeling of the film.
Next episode we review the Giorgio Morodor version of “Metropolis”. It's not the latest restored version from 2010 but it's unique in it's own way.
