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.

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2019 (98 movies items)

"Yksi Ralph Bakshin parhaista ja aliarvostetuimmista leffoista. Tarina seuraa juutalaisen maahanmuuttajaperheen neljän sukupolven vaiheita rinnastettuna amerikkalaisen populäärikulttuurin kehitykseen. Soundtrack yksinään on aivan mielettömän kova, mutta tässä Bakshi täydellisti rotoskooppaustekniikkaansa ja siivosi tyyliään vanhoista ylilyönneistä."
