Personal Quote:

I think it's impossible to do [J.R.R. Tolkien]. It's impossible to get the brilliance of what he wrote about -- just the medium, the book, the novel gives you other areas of imagination [that] film can't allow. Film has to describe and show. With the brilliance of his words and his scenes, you imagine whatever you want. I'm sure various people imagine different things. See more »

Trivia:

Comedian Richard Pryor, film directors Spike Lee and Quentin Tarantino and Wu-Tang Clan are credited as fans of Bakshi's film, Coonskin (1975). Tarantino wrote the forward to the hardcover book "Unfiltered: The Complete Ralph Bakshi". See more »
