  5. dave gunn's rating of the film Heavy Traffic

    There are definitely some great visuals scattered throughout this meandering, directionless film, but that's about it. Unfortunately, the would-be protagonist takes a backseat to the bleak and brutal portrait of New York City and the cheap excuses to introduce a titty, bloodshed, or the "n word", leaving this a film without a coherent plot or any real character development.

  6. thenicktester's rating of the film Heavy Traffic

    Seventies counterculture. Animation mixed with live action. Gritty underground comics vibe with dreamlike story. I won't forget it, that's for sure!

  7. T. J. Harman's rating of the film Heavy Traffic

    Great movie...personal, experimental...loved the mix of realism and surrealism as well as the combo of animation and live action. Also, it's REALLY un-pc...can't tell if it's the times it was made in, Bakshi or both. This deserves a bigger cult following.

  8. This is Jake Kath's rating of the film Heavy Traffic

    Perfect example of how focus and more cohesive doesn't always equal more engaging. Out of his experimental movies, Bakshi delivers probably the most blah-snore-when-is-this-going-to-end movie out of his filmography. I'll take Fritz the Cat and Coonskin over this anyday.

  11. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Heavy Traffic

    In some ways, Ralph Bakshi's most ambitious and accomplished film, certainly his most brutal and grotesque. Palpable beneath the juvenile humor and vulgarity is a raw, intense undercurrent of rebellion and surprising poignancy, as well as inventive experimentation with the medium of film animation. Definitely not for everyone, but a fascinating piece of work.
