The sex life of a chair - Phil Mulloy (1998)

Phil Mulloy’s witty exercise in the power of suggestion uses rudimentary animated drawings of chairs to diagram a Kinsey Report's worth of sexual behaviors. Without recourse to narrative or human identification, the film’s tableaux nonetheless plunge the depths of desire. By turns desperately sad and savagely funny, the fundamental innocence of Mulloy’s illustrations boomerangs back on the viewer’s imagination.
