"What you got Shaft?"
"I got laid." 😎
I'm going back to New York for my birthday next week and wanted to watch some flicks based there. When the trailer for the new one dropped about a month ago, I realized I had never seen the original.
It's incredibly iconic. Boasting a really engaging screenplay (that would soon be mimicked to death) and razor-sharp dialogue. The beauty is in its simplicity, although the film is showing its age.
