A grand film detailing life in the inner city. A beautifully crafted time capsule, the art bringing a sense of nostalgia of a long gone era.
This film is very contraversial, but it perfectly blends grimy blaxploitation action with a socially conscious art-house feel. Great film!
There are racist moments in the movie, but it's all satire. And it's directed by Ralph Bakshi.
Bakshi movies seem groundbreaking to me using animation to tell contemporary stories that capture the vibe of their times.
Bakshi's best film pukes every bit of racist minstrelsy from the past 100 years back up into the face of white America & asks how it tastes
6/9. Really different for the time. Right in the pocket for Bakshi though.
Beautiful animation and some of the best satire to date. Bakshi doesn’t give a fuck and that’s why he’s one of the best.
Purposefully offensive, used as a mirror to society
Blackspoitation flick. Artwork is great, but I admit I got through it mostly due to its oddity. I like the fact that I have watched it.
Good subversive take on the Brer Rabbit stories. Bakshi’s usual brand of adult humor is definitely in rare form with this one.
