After a successful year of double features, the Filmreakter collective has launched a new concept for Saturday nights at the Cinémathèque.

Cinélunatique features a series of truly dark gems from the Cinémathèque’s vaults. This Saturday’s offering is outrageous animated-live action film Heavy Traffic, Ralph Bakshi’s follow-up to his X-rated cartoon Fritz the Cat. He explores the surreal fantasies of Michael Corleone, a 22 year-old Jewish-Italian virgin playing pinball in NYC. Sucked into the underworld of pimps, legless bouncers and nymphomaniac transvestites, he catches the eye of tough black bartender Carole.

The Hollywood Reporter called it “shocking, outrageous, offensive, sometimes incoherent, and occasionally unintelligent. However, it is also an authentic work of movie art and Bakshi is certainly the most creative animator since Disney.”

Later this month, the Filmreakter programmes features the original Death Race 2000 and sensationalist Italian shock documentary Mondo Cane.
