Bakshi's "Cool World"

It's the film everyone loves to ridicule, But I've always really loved "Cool World", Bakshi's foray into big time Hollywood. There's some really great stuff in there! The climax of the film is when Holly pulls out the "Spike" from on top of a building in Vegas. I've posted it here in high quality, it's probably the best animation of the film. It reminds me of a punk cartoony version of Bald Mountain. This supports the overall feel of the world Bakshi is portraying, a dark and comical world of chaos and out of control cartoon antics.
