American Pop (Bakshi, 1981)

I contributed an essay on the hyper-realized animated film American Pop for the Ralph Bakshi series currently running at Not Coming To a Theater Near You. Bakshi’s disjointed treatment of history, extreme color schemes, and non-linear editing is right up my alley, so the film was a perfect introduction to his work. Look for the excellent series of essays to continue into next week.
