Klahr’s X-rated Who Framed Roger Rabbit, a suburban fantasia that makes iconic use of thermostats, high heels, and an outsize box of Jell-O, mixing a photograph with various cutouts and drawings to effect a range of simulated sex acts. Some of the images come from soft-core comix, but what’s astonishing is the psychic energy with which Klahr is able to invest them-I mean, after all, they’re only pictures. (J Hoberman)
