Critic Reviews

  1. Depending on your age, sex and mechanical inclinations, Tales of the Rat Fink will convince you that Mr. Roth should either have been canonized or smothered at birth.

    Full of interesting visuals and illustrations, Tales of the Rat Fink would have made a really great introduction to a film that I never got to see.

    To those filmgoers who wouldn't know Rat Fink from Barton Fink, this reviewer's advice is: Pass. The latest counterculture tribute by Mann, director of 1988's "Comic Book Confidential" and 1999's "Grass," is as proudly silly as it is informative, and it can't help that a critical amount of brand coolness gets lost in the translation.

    This video is really well made, but there's not much in it about Ed Roth. It's a generic history of California hot rodding, with This video is really well made, but there's not much in it about Ed Roth. It's a generic history of California hot rodding, with the occasional mention of Roth. In fact, if they had called it "A History of California Hot Rodding" it would be a lot more accurate.
