Hosted by renowned New York comic artist and burlesque performer Molly Crabapple
SEX IN THE COMIX embarks on a revealing voyage into the heart of erotic comic strips, the enticing art form that serves to unleash and expose society’s collective, if taboo, fantasies.
Hosted by erotic comic creator, burlesque performer and VICE contributing editor Molly Crabapple, SEX IN THE COMIX navigates the history of the art form, from special editions by masters of the genre to provocative new works from a younger generation of artists. The documentary features legendary comic creators R. Crumb, Milo Manara and Ralf König, as well as work from new wave and mainstream artists, including the impact of Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home, the game-changing graphic memoir which was adapted into last year’s Tony-winning Broadway musical. SEX IN THE COMIX serves as a stimulating and charming exploration into a one-of-a-kind medium.
Doppelgänger Releasing will release SEX IN THE COMIX on digital VOD for the first time in the United States on October 13, 2015, where it will be available on iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu and Vimeo On Demand
Filled with an array of alluring comic strip panels and equally beguiling segments featuring animation by graphics stylists Thomas Fage and Yann Deval, SEX IN THE COMIX is a delightful dip into the realm of comic strip eros—the perfect pick for those interested in animation, for those interested in erotica, and for anyone intrigued by the intersection of the two.
“THE LONELY HEARTS KILLERS” RE-IMAGINED IN DARKLY GRIPPING THRILLER FROM BELGIAN HORROR MAVERICK FABRICE DU WELZ
Based on notorious real-life “Lonely Hearts Killers” who make victims of their romantic liaisons, ALLELUIA is a chilling anti-love story from acclaimed Belgian horror auteur Fabrice Du Welz (Vinyan, Calvaire).
Michel (Laurent Lucas, With a Friend Like Harry,Calvaire) is a born womanizer and professional hustler with a penchant for wooing lonely, vulnerable widows and divorcees. When he meets introverted single mom Gloria (Spain’s irrepressible Lola Dueñas, Volver, I’m So Excited!) online and treats her to an electrifying first date, she’s left completely smitten.
Michel tries to swindle what he can out of the one-night stand, confessing that he dates lonely women in order to steal their money. But Gloria has other plans, abandoning her daughter and vowing to aid Michel’s scam while masquerading as his sister. The toxically co-dependent lovers embark on a deadly odyssey amplified by wild sex, unbridled jealousy and frenzied forays into the dark arts, leading to a shocking series of savage, murderous scenarios.
‘Smash & Grab’ is a fascinating documentary about the infamous real life Pink Panther diamond thieves. The film is available On Demand alongside ‘Twice Born’ starring Penelope Cruz and, for one more week, Matthew McConaughey’s ‘Mud.’
