Directed by Ralph Bakshi | 1973
"As brilliant as anything in recent movies—as brilliant and, in its own improbable way, as lovely and as sad."
—The New York Times

Bakshi followed up Fritz the Cat with this kaleidoscopic tale of pimps, pushers, and pinball in a nightmarish 1970s New York. Michael is an aspiring cartoonist who draws inspiration from the panoply of weirdos and lowlifes (including his Mafioso dad) that surround him. In this expressionistic mash-up of animation and live action, Bakshi cuts through the omnipresent sleaze with moments of grim humor and surprising poignancy.
