my favourite thing about wizards is that the plotline sounds like a total mess when you describe it to someone else, and it is, but while you're watching the film it all falls together in a way that's totally cohesive and understandable. it's like fellini's satyricon

All sorts of businesses are afflicted with leaders who'd rather feel in control than succeed.
bakshi's career is fascinating because of this, because he is a personality who's not easy to control (mostly because i don't think money means anything to him). everybody in the business recognised he was a creative genius, but the actual products of that genius were chaotic and scared the poo poo out of them. so all his movies got tampered with - except heavy traffic and wizards, which he mostly had total freedom with and they're so much better for it - but there were some things he wouldn't budge on, i.e. darkness and sex. so it's just the scripts that got butchered, you end up with something that makes zero sense but still has this incredible deranged atmosphere that the suits couldn't ruin because bakshi wouldn't allow it. there were actual behind-the-scenes fist fights on some productions

like on one hand there's the relationship between bakshi and the executives, which is 100% hostile

but then there's the relationship between bakshi and the art crew, which is like

I've actually been intentionally avoiding posting about any of my thoughts in the Steven Universe thread specifically because I don't want to ruin anyone else's good time.

I already posted quite a few negative hot takes over there while the show was on going, and now my negative hot takes are even more intense and angry and I really don't think it would do any good for me to rehash all my old complaints. The show is over, what happened happened, best to let it be and not spend too much time ruminating on something that puts me in such a negative headspace and then spreading that negativity to others.

heavy traffic is the movie i really want more people to see, but promoting it is pretty difficult because it's not really suitable for let's-watching and it's not all that accessible - just renting it online for three days cost me $18 aud, and a dvd copy cost seventy (!) it's probably available for illicit download somewhere, but i've never looked, and to steal from ralph is to steal from the lord

one day i'll do a walkthrough of cool world. but i have had no decent weed since march 2020, my liver couldn't handle a drunk watch, it is not yet wild mushroom season, and doing it sober is not an option

Heavy Traffic is loving incredible, but like Coonskin, completely impossible for me to recommend to anyone I know personally. I try to ease people in to Bakshi's good stuff with Hey Good Lookin', which is both massively underrated and light on the more extreme depictions of sex and racism.
hey good lookin' is great. it has everything i enjoy - virile anti-cop sentiment, cruelty to italians, a black gang as antagonists who are honestly more reasonable and socially constructive than the protagonists, homoeroticism

c**nskin has its moments of high art but i'd struggle to recommend it to anybody unless i knew it was their particular jam. it does seem like the one film where bakshi oversteps the line in regards to depicting black characters and culture, and it's not one of his more coherent works on top of that, but its good moments are really good and its depiction of the mafia is one for the ages. (again, i love all his italian characters. there have clearly been many interesting italians in his life, something i sympathise with.)

heavy traffic, wizards and american pop are his most unashamedly jewish works, and my three favourites. heavy traffic and wizards are just magical because there was so little executive input into them. they're just pure unadulterated energy from a slightly deranged young creative genius. wizards in particular i suspect was first dreamed up when he was a kid, and i mean that in a totally positive way. heavy traffic is deeply precious on an artistic and historical level in many ways i won't go into just now because i'm drinking prosecco and may get emotional

lotr and cool world are their own thing altogether. the only films i haven't seen yet are fritz the cat, because crumb, and fire and ice, because again, no good weed since march 2020

I just watched this again, and was wondering the reason that the animation goes from drawing to weird painted video? Was it budgetary when rotoscoping? Or some time constraint?
i think it was both

my pet theory about this movie is that 90% of the budget went on horses

fulfilling my bit of only watching movies 10-40 years after they become a thing, i just watched despicable me for the first time (with my mum fwiw)

in 300 years people will be saying "well the american empire was hosed. but they at least did stuff like this" and it will be all children's cartoons. making stories for kids and adults to watch together is the one and only area in which end-stage capitalism can still produce good stuff, because it will always be profitable but it provides room occasionally for things that aren't straight out of the formulaic box. there's something in this about the fundamental forces that drive human nature, but i'm too drunk to make the connection.

my reading of despicable me is that it's about a gay couple with a big age gap who adopt kids when one of them really wants kids but the other one is solely career-focused, and how they come to a compromise. i'm not watching any of the sequels that disqualify this reading. i won't

I just saw Cool World. The twisted design of the city was neat, but otherwise drat, what a stinker.
Constant obnoxious noise as lovely looking toons doodles babble and bounce about the frame, a barely coherent plot or world, unlikable characters and nothing animated interacts convincingly with anything physical.

I have such a greater appreciation for Who Framed Roger Rabbit now.
