Another animated classic with the director in the main part of Dick Tracy, an detective solving crimes in a comic book world. Beatty’s approach differs from that in “Cool World“. There is not a Disney-like strip world, but there are characters with weird heads and the stages are all colourful.
In a bit of a film noir type story and setting, Tracy is after the local maffia and they are after him. There are some nice names on the role. Al Pacino, William Forsythe, Stig Eldred and of course Madonna as the femme fatale “Breathless Mahony”.
“Dick Tracy” is an amusing movie with a nice twist to the comic book to film genre. A suggested (re)watch.
