“I’m not bad... I was just drawn that way.” What is to make of this haywire Zemeckis cult classic? Where are its boundaries as a goofy family flick to an innuendo charged romp? Nobody really knows, and that’s why we love it. Following his iconic role as Doc Brown from Zemeckis’ Back To The Future, Christopher Lloyd plots against Roger Rabbit and his fellow toons as the sinister Judge Doom. Upon completion, director of animation Richard Williams said, “I’m numb... from the rabbit...” Witness the fruits of his mind-bending, soul-numbing labor on 35mm.
