It is technically far less accomplished than Coonskin and therefore might be better watched first. Oh, there are still occasional innovative moments in which Bakshi plasters his characters against live action scenes, but they are mostly plastered against still photos, which is not nearly as interesting. Heavy Traffic comes with some cool creative process elements though (the protagonist is a cartoonist) and less of the jokes backfire since less of them are racially themed in Heavy Traffic. Still, I'd recommend both films - and I am ambivalent towards everything else I have seen from Bakshi.
:thumbsup: sol
Hopefully I can get to those two flicks soon and also Hey Good Lookin, which is the other of his I haven't seen yet. Fire & Ice is my most-enjoyed Bakshi by a fairly wide margin. Having seen it in the theater in middle school and also being a big Frazetta fan helps my fondness for it. I get you on your ambivalence though since, aside from that one, I am just on the upside from middling (i.e. 5-7/10 range)on most of his other fare.
I like Bakshi's style a lot without being a huge fan of any of his films - my favorite may be Wizards - it's certainly the one I have watched the most. Of his urban ones I might say Hey Good Lookin' is the best - although it's been a long time since I have seen most of these. They are all fun and very watchable.

But, Bakshi's greatest accomplishment - or at least my favorite of all his works - is his revision of Mighty Mouse from the late 80s. One of the funniest Saturday morning cartoons of all time with lots of the subversive material that one expects from Bakshi, only somewhat more hidden than usual because, hey, it's for kids! Christmas in Tattertown - a short he did around the same time is also worth seeking out.

:cheers:
Oh, I'll def have to look for Mighty Mouse, beatnik! Thanks for the FYI. And good to see some positive comment on Hey Good Lookin as well :thumbsup:
I've seen Wizards several times also; that and F&I are my two most rewatched Bakshis. I recently rewatched his LOTR also and I agree with you on Bakshi's style being a standout. It's certainly one of his strengths imho . Shame he couldn't get the funding and/or studio support to make the finale on LOTR (or so I've heard).

It is funny to think that Joel Schumacher's single greatest contribution to cinema are the imaginative costumes here. Whatever the case, Sleeper is a magnificent feat of art direction, location scouting, sets and costumes as Allen presents a Tati-like agenda regarding technological advancements. One thing that bugs me every time that I watch the film is that the dictatorship never once seems oppressive, so it is hard to root for its overthrow, but this is otherwise wonderful stuff.

I don't where the best place is to ask, but I need a lot of clarity and guidance regarding just what I can and cannot include for the Cult/Grindhouse Challenge next month, especially given the simultaneous Italian Challenge. Someone suggested somewhere that every single spaghetti western should be eligible in the Cult/Grindhouse Challenge, but what about Italian horror films? I would much rather spend a month double dosing in gialli if were deemed acceptable to include them.

The best place to ask? The Future Challenges thread, maybe?

But you might NOT need a lot of clarity about eligibility - in previous grindhouse challenges we were pretty liberal.

And I'm sure most (all?) gialli count, as do most Shaw Bros films.

I plan on hitting up both Grindhouse and the Italian challenge with a bunch of gialli... so hopefully that's all good. :thumbsup:

Last year there were a lot of lists posted including one of spaghetti westerns, but there are many more Italian genres/sub-genres that are indeed cult/grindhouse oriented and should count like gialli, cannibal flicks, peplums, sexplo and so on. Last year the challenge guidelines were fairly liberal and I am pretty sure I represented all those genres in my watches for it.

I think disappointing box office and a somewhat negative reaction from fans of the books did in Bakshi's chances at continuing LOTR. I agree that it is a shame as I find Bakshi's version very watchable.

Great collection skits here (including Allen imagining himself crucified) but not much in the way of a cohesive narrative. The politically charged parts of the film are very memorable though, especially the new dictator driven mad by power and dinner at his house. Woody Allen's expressions from behind the fake beard as Louise Lasser declares her admiration for him also offer one of his finest acting moments for sure.

This was great - and with multiple viewings of all of Allen's other 1970s films, I'm surprised it took me so long to revisit this one. The film falls into skits (like cheerleading) on occasion, but it plays out as a solid narrative for the most part with the characters debating morality, subjectivity and being able to live with the ramifications of murder. In a way, the film is a bit of a warm up for Allen's magnum opus 14 years later.

The notion of Woody Allen being coached by the spirit of Bogie in the art of love and romance is such a great idea, and I had really fond memories of the film, so I was surprised by just how infrequently Bogie actually crops up here. This a sweet and often amusing little movie, but compared to the films that Allen was directing at the time, it's a whole lot less quirky than it had the potential to be (and I wanted more moments of his ex and Bogie arguing about what he should do).

How did I get the 1960s mistaken for the 70s?

Reevaluating my list......

I don't where the best place is to ask, but I need a lot of clarity and guidance regarding just what I can and cannot include for the Cult/Grindhouse Challenge next month, especially given the simultaneous Italian Challenge.

I would much rather spend a month double dosing in gialli if were deemed acceptable to include them.
Last year there were a lot of lists posted including one of spaghetti westerns, but there are many more Italian genres/sub-genres that are indeed cult/grindhouse oriented and should count like gialli, cannibal flicks, peplums, sexplo and so on. Last year the challenge guidelines were fairly liberal and I am pretty sure I represented all those genres in my watches for it.
Just because of your response beatnik (and a couple of other reasons ha ha) I just pre-ordered the blu ray of Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals. Will watch it next month! :thumbsup:

Welcome on board India :cheers:

Unfortunately this is is the 1970s Challenge, so no points for you :P
I know--how did I do this? I'm editing now. I'll see if I've got some 1970s this month. :rolleyes: I'm eye-rolling myself!

Creatively adapted from a non-fiction book, Woody Allen presents a more organised series of skits here than in his previous two films. None of the segments really relate to their chapter headings and the film does not probe that much into human sexuality (the game show chapter aside). The film features some wonderful performances though, especially from a sheep-loving Gene Wilder, a cross-dressing Lou Jacobi and a half-mad John Carradine.

Image

As per the title, this documentary looks at a US couple with nineteen children, the majority of whom were adopted after their biological kids were born. The vast majority of their adopted kids are severely handicapped too. Fascinating as it is to watch the kids function and interact with one another, the documentary leaves open unanswered questions in terms of how they afford to have so many kids and how they have found the room to house them all.

Robert Mitchum makes a very decent Philip Marlowe in this Technicolor adaptation of the Raymond Chandler novel that was turned into Murder, My Sweet. The film looks very good with lots of neon signs capturing a seedy noir atmosphere, plus David Shire provides a typically moody music score. The plot and supporting characters sort of take a back seat to atmosphere, but this is very watchable stuff all the same.

Contrary to popular opinion, I actually liked this more than Farewell, My Lovely. Changing the setting and era to 1970s London feels like an odd move with Marlowe a bit out of place with those around him, however, I liked the way this version of the story capitalised on elements that the 1940s original was not able to due to Production Code limitations. Great creative camerawork here too, including indeed shots from underneath armpits.

Born into privilege, the two women here are interesting to follow around as they bask in memories of past glory. The younger is especially curious and with the way she parades in zany dresses and dances before the camera, one truly gets the sense of someone who has never really grown up. The most intriguing aspect of their lives though is their fall from grace - and the film never quite addresses that. Hearing the two women screech and complain for more than 90 minutes is also a little much.
