The flora and the fauna: Sometimes they’re alive and sometimes they’re not. That’s the cycle of life, right? But in these films, nature strikes back, for example when the forest heads into battle against mankind. Fish transform into monsters, whales use their poetic powers of persuasion, and mushrooms use up the last of their energy to show off the beauty of nature. And maybe they do all of this to let us know one thing: You can go on a safari without having to hunt.
