Shaft β˜…β˜…β˜…

*Meets with his fellow Detective*

"What you got Shaft?"

*Long pause*

"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.
