My childhood, my Fantastic Planet
Posted on August 24, 2012 by Kris Nelson
Fantastic Planet. La Planète Sauvage. What an incredible film. And holy hell. What an incredible musical score!
I don’t think any other animation will top this one for me. EVER. Nostalgia works that way, I’m learning.
Thanks to my parents for letting me watch this repeatedly when I was probably too young to be absorbing such hallucinogenic pretention. But now I am so happy and so weird for it.
It probably boosted my already overflowing crapload capacity for empathy and intolerance for ignorance and indifference by 110% as well. Hope it did/does the same for you.
The entire thing (English dub version) is now on YouTube, so enjoy! (EDIT: the copyright popo took it down, but please enjoy the film in segments below)
I’ve also included a few music videos that remind me of Fantastic Planet from a couple of my favorite fantastic bands because I love you so much and because I was raised proper.
Sharing is caring. *mwuah*
Autolux – The Science of Imaginary Solutions
To me, this pretty much sums up theocratic/idol worship and hedonistic autonomy. The jilted hypocrisy. But what do I know? I know this song/video is amaaaazing, that’s what. Check out more whimiscal 2D grid-a-ramas from artist Mark Whalen, yo diggity.
Beach House – Used to Be
Victoria’s breathiness makes for the perfect lullaby, agreed?
