FRITZ THE CAT
USA, 1972, 35mm, VO ST FR & NL OND, 78'
In 1972, the U.S. rating system gave this animated film an X-rating, for pornography. Yet it raked in 190 million dollars profit. The story, based on Robert Crumb's underground comic, is a death knell for 1960s ideals, with hope for a better future giving way to paranoia, cynicism, and violence.
