Barely even friends
Lizard woman from the dawn of time
King of his world
A god disguised as a bull
By night one way, by day another
Always together, eternally apart
La Belle et la Bête
French poet and filmmaker Jean Cocteau brought an art-house touch to his 1946 movie interpretation of Beauty and the Beast, "La Belle et la Bête" (DisCina). There is little dialogue, and the story unspools in gestures and expressions, with composition and lighting that pay homage to fine artists and masters of surrealism. The film was widely praised as an artistic masterpiece, with noted film critic Roger Ebert calling it a "fantasy alive with trick shots and astonishing effects," and "one of the most magical of all films" in a review published December 1999 in the Chicago Sun-Times.
"My dream wouldn't be complete without you in it."
"He's my boyfriend!"
"Is that a rabbit in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"
Ever a surprise
Who's afraid of the big, bad wolf?
A couple for the apocalypse
The foul-mouthed, unpredictable army-deserter outlaw Tank Girl wreaks havoc across a post-apocalyptic landscape in Australia with her partner in crime and sometime sex partner Booga, a mutated kangaroo, in the comics series "Tank Girl." The British comic debuted in 1988, was adapted into a film in 1995 — starring Lori Petty as the obnoxiously endearing title character and Jeff Kober as Booga — and the latest comics series, "Tank Girl Gold," will be published on June 13 as a trade paperback.
