Although the plot, like the music itself, can be somewhat too strident, the animation is remarkably successful in delineating the sad geography of the human body and the massive backgrounds of American cities.
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.
Although cartoonish in the most pejorative sense, American Pop knows its musical lore. This film has little bits of tragedy that just may break your heart.
American Pop celebrates the vitality of music which seems to weather all changes and continues to serve as a vehicle for our hopes and dreams.
If you're into Bakshi, it might be okay. I'm not. It isn't.
Equal parts a confused mess and an inspired piece of musical animation.
every time it starts engaging the viewer, it quickly shifts gears and heads into a new decade
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.
