Cartoon as a fatal sexually transmitted disease

If I was asked in my childhood, when I first time I saw that film: "did You like it?", I would answer: "Yes."
Growing up, it is the understanding of what is "a story drawn drawn moms tell children before bedtime." Like cartoons they say: "We do not seem like a real".

"Cool World" — the world of Vice, gambling, night clubs and other dirty places. A sort of Las Vegas 40 years. Every day in a parallel world of big trouble.

At the center of all history, three characters.

Stylish Frank Harris (brad pitt), teleportuojasi in parallel world and who firmly believes in law and order.

Artist Jack Deebs (Gabriel Byrne) — the Creator of a parallel world, well, or parts of it. Their fantasies it embodies drawn by characters. And first in most desirable woman Cool Worldand cartoons Holi, without where he would be lost.

Two antipodes, Frank and Jack, connects one wish — both are not want to the real world. But for different reasons. Frank's nightmares of a past life. For him the parallel world is real. Here he home. Here it is the green-eyed toon Lonette and a true friend — six-legged BLOB nails. Jack doesn't want to return to the real world, because it — strong life, why it here. He good in Cool Worlde.

Cartoon Holly wood a La Marilyn Monroe (Kim Basinger). Such a beautiful and so bad. Holli Would is much smarter than it seems. She wants the real world. Wants to be real, to sense, to feel. Wants to all about than dreamed of. And to do this, Holly is ready to break the oldest law of a parallel world...

America is obsessed with the comics. It is the meaning of life for many people. They live it. In drawn life everything is possible. And, I believe, for many imagination exists a magical beam teleportation on the Plaza. The power of the beam for the limits of our understanding.

The film is not without a sense of humor and even morality — understanding how easy to upset the balance and destroy both world.
If you ask me now: "You liked?". My response is: "I expected more".

The integration of hand-drawn animation in film — ambiguous very risky. In the result the light can appear "Who framed Roger rabbit", has earned the love of critics and viewers and gathered a bunch of Academy awards, and can be "Parallel world", which can be considered a failure at all fronts, art and financial. In fact, any Parallels and associations that occur with "Roger Rabbit" at the discussion of this film is inevitable — creation Zemeckis has created a new genre and made a mini-revolution in the feature film, with his high standards, to which Ralph Bakshi when all their desire is not reached out to, even holding the ladder.

According to the story "Parallel world", a war veteran Frank Harris in the face of a young brad pitt returned home, but the coincidence of fatal circumstances gets in a terrible accident. Emotionally overflowed the plot gives hope for viewing is really good movie, but very long — Frank gets in parallel entertainment world, "cool world", and interest events on the screen falls with fleeting speed.

Without going into the details of the plot, is to say about three Central characters in the film. Already familiar Frank Harris, once in a different reality, without explanation for the audience becomes a local detective, whose task is — to protect cartoon characters from people who accidentally got in this world. Cushy job, when you consider that these lucky ones are only two — he and comic book writer Jack Deebs in performance Gabriel Byrne. Jack is also the guy challenging — he gets in cool world accidentally, then on their own — the causes of these teleports the viewer so not explained. The main goal of the Frank — save salidroside Holli (Kim Basinger) from Jack, or, rather, the main motive of the girl — by any means to sleep with the Dibs to become a real person. All the absurdity of this story takes place on the background of the nasty animations that exacerbates bad experiences from seeing the pictures.

Animation in the picture Bakshi is the catalyst of interest in the movie spectators, but was that it makes multialkali to treat  the"Parallel world" with disdain and irony. On cartoon characters impossible to watch without disgust — odious, vulgar, unpleasant, at all of this is affecting a complete lack of common sense in action. Illogical jumble of a third-rate cartoon characters greatly hinders the view — they run in a crowd frame, start to peel each other reason from the sky they are falling objects — questionable humor and even more questionable artistic value. It is clear that the authors wanted to show all the cruelty and callousness of the characters, but the creators clearly went overboard with the grotesque. Sometimes it seems that not film, one and a half hour portfolio Director, created for demonstration of possibilities. But even as a portfolio of "Parallel world" is not draws attention, at least because the integration of live people and cartoon characters too weak and all the flaws thrown in eyes.

Despite all the disadvantages of film, all well there are some details that help to overpower the creature Bakshi to the end. In the first place, this drawing cartoon dark city, of course, is an allusion to the twisted dirty Vegas, — the surreal house machine, narrow winding roads, dark bridges. To unfortunately, all this dark beauty is lost on the background of the vulgar and poor characters. To about vulgarity. Closing his eyes to the entire indecency Holly wood, whose presence the frame turns the film into easy erotica, this character is still very attracted the attention of — brazen, uninhibited, sexy — the dream of any man. We should thank the authors for the soundtrack the film. Languid, rhythmic, dance music really brings out the bleakness and surrealism, which are impregnated picture. Despite unknown — we hear David Bowie, and Moby, and Ministers — music produces the desired effect, setting the viewer on right mood.

"Cool world" was not cool. For cartoon — unprofessional, for fantasy — dirty, for Comedy — not funny, the characters are unpleasant, the plot is absurd, the ending is crumpled. But if not to cut with shoulder the attention to the positive aspects of the movie, "Parallel world" deserves

Worse Than "Roger Rabbit". The girl as Jessica rabbit at all, but just her and worth watching this movie. Byrne is extremely pale, and pitt is barely noticeable. Basinger should appear in person and in the beginning of the film. Interested in sex with toon, let them rejoice. More particularly nothing to see here.
