La Planète Sauvage

I found the DVD edition of this in the shops: La Planète Sauvage, an influential, cult, animated movie by French director René Laloux. Didn't buy it because I can't afford any luxuries right now, but I did find that the entire film was on YouTube so I can at least preview it and share it with you. I've only seen the first two nine-minute fragments, but I can tell you it's trippy stuff. I've been told that it gets more disturbing and horrific as it goes on.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3
Part 4
Part 5
Part 6
Part 7

Update: I've seen the whole thing now, and while there is a lot that's interesting in the film from a visual style point of view, the thing falls apart a bit towards the end, and the supposedly horrific scenes actually look comically cartoonish, at least in the small YouTube window. May be different on a larger screen, I guess.

Also, my French has completely gone to shit and I can't follow half of the dialogue anymore. I need subtitles. So I just might get a copy of this movie if and when my financial situation allows it again.
