Friday, January 18th @ Midnight
1982 - directed by Ralph Bakshi – with Scatman Crothers, Barry White
Talk a walk down Ralph Bakshi’s sleazy memory lane in this animated ode to the greasy fifties. Set on the seedy streets of Brooklyn, NY, the story follows Vinnie, leader of the Stompers, as he gets in and out of trouble with his pal Crazy Shapiro and their girls. Whether it’s the talking existential trash can, the pimps and the prostitutes, or the wildy overstated ethnic stereotypes, Bakshi is his usual madcap self here, filling the frame with wild gags and gorgeous background painting.
