557. Super Fly

Super Fly
1972
Directed by Gordon Parks










So wait isn't this just Shaft again?  Or well.  At least the soundtrack is better.

The film follows the adventures of Priest, a cocaine dealer in New York City.  There are strong female characters and different races are celebrated.  Just kidding.

So like I said, it's pretty much Shaft again.  I don't exactly think this a positive step in the civil rights movement.  Not that it necessarily has to be, but you would think that with such a crappy plot that would be the redeeming quality.

Skippable and not worthy of its place on The List.

RATING: **---

Interesting Facts:

Script was only 45 pages.
