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.


HEAVY TRAFFIC
1973, Park Circus/MGM, 77 min, USA, Dir: Ralph Bakshi

The roaring follow-up to FRITZ THE CAT, HEAVY TRAFFIC offers up another highly personalized view of urban America, this time centered on Michael, a down-and-out cartoonist drowning in the sounds of the city around him - pimps, pushers, provocateurs and more.


FRITZ THE CAT
1972, Park Circus/MGM, 78 min, USA, Dir: Ralph Bakshi

Slapped with the first X rating for an animated feature, FRITZ charts the odyssey of a dropout tomcat through 1960s over-indulgence - humping, hash, hippies and Hell’s Angels - as writer R. Crumb originally chronicled it in his comics.
