Director, scriptwriter, impresario, magazine editor, cartoonist. Renaissance man Lapointe is best known as a prolific energizing force within Montreal's commercial erotic culture, director of the Festival des arts du Village as well as principal collaborator at the skin magazine Zipper/Zip since 1994. As Lubrik (his connection to 2001: A Space Odyssey is unknown), Lapointe was a chief artistic contributor to Quebec's two most successful porno features, Alex et Bruno (1999) and Fuck Friends (2000, dir.). The former narrative of an urban peeping tom finding farmwork, love and orgies in the country was a hit both sides of the Atlantic. The latter populist fresco of gay-next-door roommates topping each other's erotic escapades was less meteoric commercially but more artful, with its low-key improvised performances, down-home snowscapes, long johns, and horny firemen.
