Classics and discoveries from around the world, thematically programmed with special features, on a streaming service brought to you by the Criterion Collection.
One of the most sui generis artistic partnerships in cinema history, director René Laloux and writer-animator Roland Topor produced only a handful of works together, but each is a marvel of surrealist invention and psychedelic wonder. First, mutant snails run amok in the gloriously weird LES ESCARGOTS. Then, get transported to a most FANTASTIC PLANET in their sole feature, a head-trip science-fiction phantasmagoria that has taken its place as a midnight-movie classic thanks to its lysergic visuals and antiauthoritarian message.
