April got this classic 1973 French animated film from Netflix by chance. She’d been getting a lot of odd anime movies — most of which I had no interest in whatsoever — and was automatically recommended a film called Fantastic Planet. The beautifully animated little epic tells the story of the Oms and the Traags. The Oms are basically humans and the Traags are the giant, blue-skinned overlords who keep them as pets and exterminate them like rodents. The picture is loaded with glorious, surreal imagery. It’s an absolute joy to watch.

Apparently the film is also an anti-communist allegory, depicting the Soviet Union’s abuse of its satellite states in the form of the way the Traags torment the Oms. Check it out.
