The Illustrated Man

"Grim"

The Illustrated Man Review


"Don't dare stare at the illustrated man!" warns the poster for this Ray Bradbury-inspired sci-fi film. Indeed, don't stare. You'll probably fall asleep. This collection of vignettes culled from Bradbury's collection of short stories (including "The Veldt," unavoidable in American high school), each beginning with a tattoo on an inexplicably (and agrily) tattooed individual, the stories are unfortunately very protracted and poorly produced; the tattoo narrative used to tie them all together is equally sleepy.
