Curtis Mayfield's "SuperFly" is one of the albuns I most heard in my entire life, so I was always curious to watch this movie but, for some reason, I never did it until today. Now I finally got to watch it and, although I wasn't expecting much thing, this is good as fuck.
Briefly, Priest is a cocaine dealer who's trying to get out of business. The film had a major social impact being one of the biggest names in blaxploitation.
I thought the cinematography and direction would leave something to be desired, but I was wrong. Besides, it has that 70's noir look that I appreciate. The soundtrack also was inserted in a very contagious way and even Curtis himself appeared in a scene playing "Pusherman".
They gave a consistent, intelligent, cool ending that even created a metaphor for resistance in the existing racial conflict.
Definitely, a must-watch movie.
