What People Are Saying

In the current climate of parody, pastiche, re-hashing, re-booting and recycling of films, it is so refreshing to see a film as unique, original and enjoyable as Strange Frame: Love and Sax. Billed as a animated sci-fi lesbian rock musical, it covers all these modes and blends them into a gorgeous and engrossing tale of the power of love and music. Something so dense in form and content should be overwhelming, but director and co-writer G.B. Hajim and co-writer Shelley Doty keep it pumping along at a smooth pace, making it an embarrassment of riches. – Twitch Films

“This is the animated sci-fi lesbian rock musical to see.” – David Parkinson, Empire Online

[box title="Perez Hilton" color="#e0cbff"]“Strange Frame…is cutting edge in a lot of ways. The animation it uses, the music composed for it and the story it tells pushes the boundaries in numerous ways – and we’re hoping it will get a lot of recognition for all facets of it’s production.”[/box]

“Strange Frame boldly brings an epic, futuristic lesbian drama to creative life with fresh animation. —She Wired

[box title="Huffington Post" color="#e0cbff"]“G.B. Hajim and Shelley Doty’s ‘Strange Frame,’ The World’s First Animated Lesbian Sci-Fi Film”[/box]

“Three things set this film apart from others. The style of animation is unlike any other. The movie enlists Hollywood’s A-list voice, music and mixing talents. And all of the work is done on the Big Island.” —Peter Sur, Hawai’i Times-Herald

“In the current climate of parody, pastiche, re-hashing, re-booting and recycling of films, it is so refreshing to see a film as unique, original and enjoyable as Strange Frame...a rare film: inspiration by other forms is noticeable, but it is not merely repetition or homage. It is a dreamscape, one that does not shy aware from the ugly, yet celebrates the beautiful.” - Shelagh M. Rowan-Legg, Twitch Film

"probably one of the most visually riveting movies released in recent years. The energy and beauty of the animation, and the strength of its vocal performers (particularly Curry, who is the definitive voice actor for flamboyant evil) keep this story of love up among the stars." - Adam Mohrbacher, FilmMonthly

"It’s thrilling, sexy, entertaining due to it’s massive amount of music and visual stimulation, but more importantly, a story that has a deep meaning and a refreshing plotline. This film has cult classic written all over it.” - AJ Garcia, Shakefire

“Some films are instant cult classics the minute they appear. G.B.Hajim's STRANGE FRAME is one such film.” – Heather Massey, The Galaxy Express

"Not since WIZARDS have I enjoyed a rock musical with animation this much. Speaking of animation the characters are exquisite…The smooth flow of this cutting edge film is more than sci-fi animation – it is an experience not to be missed." – Jeri Jacquin, Movie Maven

"an electrifying trip for the eyeballs, fully embracing a visual style that, at most, very few films share." - Tyler Foster , DVDTalk

"What the fuck? No really. What the fuck? I must have said that at least twenty times while watching this crazy, visual trip of a film…I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen and will be tuning in again for repeat viewings." – Mike Gencarelli, MediaMikes

"If youʻre a sci-fi fan this a must see…like a vintage issue of Heavy Metal come to life and given depth. The graphics alone could make Strange Frame a head-turner, but then add to it a legendary sci-fi voice cast…it's own beast, and well worth a look if you get a chance.” – Brett Cullum, DVD Verdict

"One could call Strange Frame the best animated motion comic, except that it is not a comic…the combination of the hand-painted, computer assisted animation and CGI results in a very unique look. This will draw in a lot of people, even if they are not drawn in by the story. Personally, I was fascinated with both." – C.S. Strowbridge, The Numbers

"If ever you wondered what a truly unhinged mash-up of the dominant production styles of Heavy Metal, Barbarella and Blade Runner would look like, here’s your chance." – Danielle Riendeau, AfterEllen

"The awesome does not stop….Wildly Inventive" - Tracy Gilchrist, SheWired
"The animation is very much like something out of a dream.” - Alexander Bustos, Comic Attack

“the film excels is with the music…soulful jazz riffs on solo saxophone that will make your heart ache just listening to them.” – Siobhan Greene, Fangoria

“ the visuals are what made this movie. Think 1960's acid trip meets dreamlike anime film and add in a futuristic space setting. At the start of the movie, you feel overwhelmed by how much is going on at once. Then, once you realize Hajim knows exactly what he's doing with all of these elements, it's easy to sit back, relax and let the story take the wheel.” -Jade Salazar, Tagg Magazine

“the movie goes out of its way for its consumers. It has danceable songs, spaceships, nipples, clever dialogue…it is not only a Blade Runner movie but also an A Star Is Born movie…” - Jason Rohrer, Stage and Cinema

“just what the doctor ordered” - Karman Kregloe, Huffington Post
