Grass (Ron Mann, 1999)



Nice archival footage of US soldiers in Vietnam literally shotgunning ganj. But it was on tv so no screenshots for you.


Fritz the Cat (Ralph Bakshi, 1972)

USA, 78 min


Psychedelic, irreverent, adults-only animated film based on underground artist Robert Crumb’s cartoon of ultra-hip cat. Cult favorite for its cynical look at ’60s counterculture. Entertaining for those who lived through era. —

Bakshi‘s feature film debut. His three major films from this late ’60s/ early ’70s period are each pretty raw, highly personal, and controversial. (I’ve now only Heavy Traffic left to see from this era, and I’m expecting it to be the best of the lot.)
