Six Pix: Lips

Six Pix presents a sextet of movie posters representing a particular actor/director/genre. You pick the one you feel is visually the most artistic or best sums up the film.

No eyes, ears, nose, or throat. Just lips this Six Pix.


Included are: Emmanuelle (1974); The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975); The Funhouse (1981); Draghoula (1995); Inside Deep Throat (2005); and Temptation (2013).

I’m not simply paying lip service to these posters; each one is genuinely successful in conveying its theme whether it is the eroticism of Emmanuelle and Inside Deep Throat, the horrors of Draghoula and The Funhouse or the…well, temptation of Temptation and Rocky Horror. In the fertile garden of my mind two lips blossom (see what I did there?): Emmanuelle’s sexual directness and Rocky Horror’s ambiguous love-horror attraction/repulsion. In this case X does mark the spot.

Which one do you think is the winner? Should I have included something else? Tell me about it below! (And please feel free to suggest future topics.)
