Heavy Traffic not only has an authentic tenement toughness but the rough feeling of unassimilated autobiography, of experiences and fantasies still keenly felt.

There's something to offend everyone in this melange of crudely conceived, amateurishly animated stuff.

The quality of the animation is cornflake packet standard, the script -- one or two minor moments excepted -- a disaster.

A cruel, funny, heartbreaking love note to a city kept alive by its freaks, and always, always dying.

Bakshi manages to offend nearly everyone from transvestites to mafiosi; but the comic distancing achieved by his army of animators manages to bring off a most difficult kind of humor: the humor of pain and despair.
