Review

This legendary 1926 animated film, an Arabian Nights–style fairy tale, is like a fever dream from another world, consisting of excruciatingly detailed stop-motion silhouette animation.

Ahead of its time: The Adventures of Prince Achmed must have seemed strange back when animated feature films were still a thing of the future, but even in the Age of Pixar it’s still mind-blowing—like nothing you’ve ever seen. Don’t miss it.
