in 1991 and '92, Aeon Flux first appeared as a series of six wordless short films on Liquid Television, Mtv's animated anthology. Peter Chung's bizarre sci-fi vision was drenched in kinky sexuality and violence, and popped off the screen like nothing else at the time. The dramatic figures were always contorted into spidery Egon Schiele-style poses, Chung's boldly surrealist style of storytelling always kept the viewer engaged but disorientated, and the animation still crackles with pure electricity 20 years later. a masterpiece.
later, Aeon Flux evolved into an even stranger thirty minute weekly series on Mtv, complete with dialogue and a wider and more complex storyline, but those episodes do not hold a candle to the initial six short films.
