It tells the story of a band of four extraterrestrial musicians who are kidnapped and brought back to Earth by an evil manager. Their only hopes lie with a space pilot from their home planet who, after receiving a distress call broadcasted during the abduction, seeks out to rescue them.

As someone who's grown to regard visual albums as some of the greatest pieces of media film has to offer, I'd place Daft Punk's Interstella 5555 at the top of any I've ever seen, and by far in the threshold as one of my favourite movies of all time.

Discovery is a masterpiece, but I feel like this kind of misunderstands the appeal of Daft Punk and their music which was that the world was futuristic and cool but you were still just a normal guy doing boring things, so it would have been cool if space fanboy got more focus.

It’s not bad, though! HBFS and Something About Us were highlights, though they tried to ...
