1977, Bakshi Productions

I'll be the first to admit Wizards is hardly a great film; indeed, it might not even be considered a good film. But for Bakshi followers, such as myself, it carries a strong sense of nostalgia, and thus occupies a special—if admittedly twisted—place in my heart. The animation is highly variable, from inspired simplicity to worthless rotoscoped stock footage. The banal story serves only to provide an excuse to introduce certain characters, some of them Bakshi's best. And it's nothing if not politically incorrect.
