    Techno house band Daft Punk and anime legend Leiji Matsumoto combine to form Interstella 5555 - an hour long movie that's essentially one long music video, with all the songs from Daft Punk's "Discovery" album. Originally, the first four parts were used to make a series of music videos (which I personally remember seeing on Toonami YEARS ago), but then a whole movie was made.

    You can watch the entire movie at once:


    Or one part at a time:


    It's what I'd consider to be a cult following movie. How many fans of it are on this site? :)

    I love this film, and miss Leiji Matsumoto's character designs.

    I love this movie. It helps that Discovery is one of my most favorite albums ever.

    I own the DVD of it!

    I will be including the female lead of the band (Stella :p ) alongside 2-D of Gorillaz & the more ancient British rockers together in a massive Linkara-style Punch up fancomic!

    I remember my brother showing me this a few years back, one of the best movies ever. Plus, Daft Punk kicks ass.
