"Undeniably exciting" is what Leonard Maltin calls this pioneering film that kicked off the entire "blaxploitation" action film genre of the 1970s. When you're born, raised and trapped in the ghetto, you want to get out any way you can -- in this case, it's a Harlem drug dealer trying to set up a retirement fund before he quits the business for good. Directed by Gordon Parks, Jr. ("The Learning Tree"), and featuring the classic score by legendary Curtis Mayfield]]>
"Superfly" is one of the most enduring streetwise films of its era, due to the dynamic central performance of Ron O'Neal ("Red Dawn," "Original Gangstas"), the sizzling score by Curtis Mayfield and the gritty direction of the late Gordon Parks, Jr. ("Three the Hard Way," "Aaron Loves Angela"). "Superfly" is super entertainment with an indelible message. It's life on the edge, put together by talents who know just how sharp it can get.
This was an old favorite. Back in the day it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. I'm happy to hold this memory in my hand.Published 1 month ago by Joe N. Norman II
