|Leather–bound and lethal, Aeon Flux - secret agent, saboteur - engages in a never-ending battle of wills with her nemesis/love, Trevor Goodchild. And what she may lack in morals and warmth, she more than makes up for with cat-like reflexes and ammunition. This director’s cut of the groundbreaking MTV series is a mind-blowing combination of killer comic-book style animation, complex plots and themes, and action-driven narrative. The 3-disc set includes ten digitally re-mastered episodes, and the original MTV shorts. Aeon Flux doesn’t skate the edge, she is the edge. And she will prevail, even if it kills her. Over and over again.|
Editor's NoteIn the early 1990s, animator Peter Chung presaged the bleak futurism of THE MATRIX with his cutting-edge animated series AEON FLUX. The edgy cult favorite originated as a sequence of film shorts aired as part of MTV's animation showcase, Liquid Television, but proved to be so popular that it was soon expanded into its own full-length series. Moody and stylish, the sci-fi-themed series chronicled the morally ambiguous adventures of its titular antiheroine, Aeon Flux, an acrobatic and bondage-clad secret agent who carried out her mercenary missions in a futuristic, BLADE RUNNER-like society. In addition to a unique visual style that echoed Japanese anime, the series distinguished itself with experimental narrative that eschewed continuity, plot, and even dialogue for a distinctly postmodern slice of sci-fi nihilism. Innovative and highly influential, AEON FLUX is presented in its entirety with this collection that includes both the shorts and the longer episodes in beautifully restored and remastered editions.
