This being my third venture into Bakshi's work, and the first non-fantasy film that I have watched, I have to say that his style is growing on me. There is something in his use of rotoscoping coupled with more adult themes and storylines that I find interesting. His characters are at times grotesquely real, especially in American Pop.

"A simple story about the legacy of a Russian immigrant as the traditional American values of imperialist violence and narcotics destroy it. Bakshi is making it though, and it's a musical, so it's an absolute treat for the eyes and ears. I love that 80% of male faces make me think that Robert Z'Dar must have had a hell of a paycheck with rotoscope acting for this movie. Though I would be remiss to give it many points for being a touching story (it was kind of worn out when it came out), definitel"
