Ralph Bakshi. The original Weird Fiction?

Post by Guest on Mon Mar 02, 2009 10:35 am

I awoke this morning with a hankering for some Ralph Bakshi, rotoscope, animated movie action.

I had been watching A Scanner Darkly, which made me wiki the technique used to make the the movie, which lead me to some Ralph Bakshi links, which lead me to the wiki page for his 1977 movie, Wizards, which took me to Youtube to watch the movie.

That's often how my brain works. I just let it follow the threads to see where they lead me.

I love Wizards, and upon giving a viewing, I realized that it fits rather nicely into the modern genre of Weird Fiction, my new most favorite of genres. It looks like Fantasy at first, but then elements which have no place in Fantasy begin to creep in.

Anywho.... I don't know where I'm going with this thread... Any Ralph Bakshi fans?

Wasn't Brad Pitt in that movie? Actually, I just Googled it. Yeah, I liked that movie.

I'll have to keep my eye out for his movies. Cool World was a riot!
