WIZARDS
1977, 20th Century Fox, 82 min, USA, Dir: Ralph Bakshi

A post-apocalyptic vision like none before, where twin wizards - the wicked Blackwolf and the good-hearted Avatar - battle for rule over an epic, fantasy wasteland.


THE LORD OF THE RINGS (1978)
1978, The Saul Zaentz Co., 132 min, USA, Dir: Ralph Bakshi

Originally a topic of griping among hard-core Tolkien fans, Bakshi’s bold, hallucinogenic interpretation of hobbits and the journey they undertake to save Middle-earth was later hailed by Peter Jackson as one of his inspirations for the live-action trilogy.


COONSKIN
1975, Xenon Pictures, 100 min, USA, Dir: Ralph Bakshi

Also known as STREETFIGHT. Bleak and brutal, this is the biting tale of Harlem street survival - an unforgiving war between gun-toting punks, prostitutes and all the cool, cruel people who populate the rest of the sidewalk. Philip Michael Thomas, Barry White and Scatman Crothers star in this potent blend of live-action and animation.
