"Sax Island is a clever combination of real figures placed against and within animated sets and props. The plot unfolds through a layering of images, recorded sounds and jazz interludes - framing erotic obsessions and lustful behavior. Recurring motifs and enlarged details produce a fantasy narrative which manipulates the features of comic strips, detective thrillers and the structures of television commercials." -Christina Ritchie
