I interpreted this controversial, inflammatory film as an analysis of stereotypes and prejudice in 1970s America. Peppered with hideous racism, violence and sexual obscenity, this is a film that took me off guard. Bakshi's vision is in no way easy to handle or pinpoint, and at times it isn't easy to decipher what his aims are. That being said, this is an exhilarating vision full of wild ideas and I was onboard from the moment it began. It reminds me a lot of one of my favorite novels: Last Exit to Brooklyn by Hubert Selby Jr. In terms of its narrative approach and subject matter, it bears a lot of resemblances to that book. I think it's unfortunate that this movie has been judged the way it has, because I personally believe it has a lot of artistic merit.
Animated / live action kind of retelling of Songs of the South minus the cutes plus racism and set in Harlem gangster town. I don't really know what to say about this one. Interesting, different, satirical, ugly, unique. With Barry White as a boxing bear.
Groundbreaking as it was when it premiered in 1975,this was also very controversial. Set in the gritty streets of Harlem during the 1970's, this was crazy animation at the next level and this went way beyond Bakshi's previous works with a hint of Disney's "Song of the South" complete with stereotypes and all of the above. Complete with gangsters,drugs,and the mafia along with the rest of the crew. Could you believe that one of the biggest R&B singers of his day Barry White chose to do voicework for this? He did along with Scatman Crothers in this masterpiece of animation cimema.
