Summary

Crimes of the Future details the wanderings of Tripod (Mlodzik), who is searching for his mentor, the dermatologist Antoine Rouge. In 1996, Rouge has disappeared following a catastrophic plague resulting from cosmetic products, which has killed the entire population of sexually mature women. Tripod meets various individuals and groups of men who are trying to adjust themselves to a defeminized world. One man parodies childbirth by continually growing new organs which are removed from his body. Eventually Tripod comes upon a group which is holding a 5 year-old girl, and they urge him to mate with her. He senses the presence of Antoine Rouge. Year 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday (link will display full 1996 Gregorian calendar). ...

Kim Newman, in his 1988 book Nightmare Movies, has described Crimes of the Future as being "more fun to read about in synopsis than to watch", and as proving, along with Stereo, that "it's possible to be boring and interesting at the same time." Kim Newman (born July 31, 1959) is an English journalist, film critic, and fiction writer. ...
