Just here to have a great time watching as many films as I can and engaging with other cinema lovers :)
About time I delved into this 70's classic, considering it's often spoken about as the best of the Blaxploitation movies from that era (Dependant on whether or not you consider it one, because it's so much more than that).
First thing to note is J.J Johnson and Bobby Womack's scintillating soundtrack, with the title track standing the test of time as one of the grooviest soul songs of all time.
As for the narrative, it's engaging and thrilling but for…
A thoroughly engaging and intricate piece of filmmaking, especially from a visual standpoint, enhanced even further by some well measured performances from the stellar cast.
• Comer has had a fantastic year, and at only twenty-eight, she has a very bright future to look ahead upon. A nuanced and beautifully acted performance- in my opinion the best one here.
• Damon has been a consistently quality actor for around twenty five years now, and he shows no signs of slowing…
Saw a special one time screening in a local city theatre with a pre recorded Q+A at the end.
Being one of my favourite films, it feels like a blessing to watch it on a huge screen in a cinema with my mate Byron.
Dickerson’s direction is near flawless, 2pac is fucking insane and in my opionion it’s one of dopest 90s joints. I look forward to watching this several more times in my lifetime.
Also that scene at the funeral is some cold blooded shit. Fucking crazy stuff haha
