Phil Mulloy: Extreme Animation Review

Image for Phil Mulloy: Extreme Animation

Black comedy and existential insight can both be found in this collection of inspired cartoon episodes.

★★★★

For proof that animation is indeed an adult affair, look no further than the work of Phil Mulloy. His inky black figures inhabit a bleak, violent, near-suicidal world.

Whether he's creating modern parables or poems to despair (the magnificent Sound Of Music), Mulloyís monochrome lines are often broken only by a splash of blood red. This collection gathers together 24 of his films over two-and-a-half hours.

If you love Sin City, check this out — it's twisted, intelligent and very funny.
