A good film that I enjoyed.The characters aren't ment to be liked,but the whole package turns out great.Bakshis animation is amazing and rotoscoping is as good as ever.Also, as is imaginable,the soundtrack kicks ass and takes names.

A good time for those who can take innovation.Reviewed byDan Levine (ultimatexman)Vote: 7/10
"American Pop" is a fantastic animation directed by Ralph Bakshi disclosing the American pop music in the Twentieth Century until 1980. The storyline follows four generations of a Russian Jewish family of refugees from the Russian Revolution that immigrate to America. Along the years, the boy Zalmie discovers life and love in night-clubs as performer and musician and becomes the patriarch of generations of musicians. The big picture of the American history is the background to present wonderful music, in blues, jazz, rock and roll, in one of the most beautiful soundtracks of the cinema history. My vote is ten.
Title (Brazil): "American Pop"
I stare with utter disbelief at the high rating given to this piece of cinematic flotsam. Making serious animation is a good idea, but I believe that this movie helped ruin any chances for it being taken seriously. There is no single protagonist, as this movie goes through several generations. None of the characters are remotely likable despite all of the depressing tortures the movie unleashes upon them. This movie delights in causing pain to it's characters in a vain attempt to make the audience care one iota about the characters. The plot is stolen from (in this order) old gangster films, WWII films, James Dean movies, and, finally, "The Rose." Even worse is the horrible, horrible animation which is painful and unbearable to watch. Worst yet is it's disrespect for the "popular music" which the movie claims to be about. Jimi Hendrix is animated horribly, and Bob Segar songs are somehow considered punk. Deep hurting, definitely on my list of top 10 worst films.
