Critic Reviews for American Pop
This is a film that grandly overreaches, attempting to condense a century's worth of triumph and tragedy into ninety minutes. To a surprising degree it succeeds.
Has a wonderful soundtrack, but it fails to provide an actual story unless you look hard...
A sprawling and messy work whose flaws are inextricable from its brilliance.
Audience Reviews for American Pop
This movie is just a retrospective on American music in cartoon form, I've always wondered why Bakshi made this movie. It's boring and uninteresting.
In an hour and a half American Pop covers a stunning amount of territory. both thematically and narratively. This might be the most polished animation in a Bakshi film, with a fantastic soundtrack and vibrant style.
I really liked this film. I found it interesting and the music is fantastic to listen to.
