Ralph Bakshi: A Rotospective

Rotospective: A Journey through American Pop, Lessons in History, Family and American music

American Pop is an amazing journey through the family tree of four generations of a Russian Jewish immigrant family of musicians and songwriters as told through the american music scene. Family matters, heirlooms, relationships and music. In my opinion, this is the best movie following a family tree throughout generations that has ever been attempted. That is follows popular American music is an added bonus, but at it’s heart this film is about family.

Ralph Bakshi: A Rotospective

Rotospective: Hey Good Lookin’ Teaches Us to Be Who We Are

Now, Hey Good Lookin’┬ájust seems like piece out of time. Although the most recent Indiana Jones featured greasers this is at the other end of the spectrum. This movie is full of┬áracial tension and sexual frustration. It’s a love story, an us vs. them story, and above all it’s a coming of age story about finding your way.

Small Oddities: A Mascot, A Screenshot, A Seal and The Warden

This edition of small oddities takes us from the 70’s and 80’s right up through some more modern art. We have a Silhouette screenshot from Ralph Bakshi’s 1978 Lord of the Rings, Cool Spot the 80’s mascot for 7 Up, a modern seal for Loki from Avengers and a very well done digital painting.
