Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: "The City of Lost Children" (1995)

This week a modern cult classic of French cinema has its 20th anniversary blu-ray edition come out, and it's a sci-fi film really worth seeing that will likely blow your mind with the visuals and sheer strangeness of the universe. Co-directed by Jean Pierre Jeunet, whose other films Delicatessen and Amelie also employ a surreal and fanciful style, this one is about a little girl who teams up with a young Ron Perlman to go on a journey to retrieve his little brother from a mad scientist who kidnaps children and steals their dreams. The world they inhabit is inspired by a steam punk look and the mere sight of everything in this film is awe-inspiring. I urge you to check this one out- it's a gem.
