I am interested in unusual, cult, or dated films of (almost) all genres that can expose and explain attitudes and cultural phenomena from times past, often better than a history book. I have seen many "blaxploitation" films which were largely made in the 1970's for urban audiences, and they are frequently interesting to watch from a cultural vantage point (1971's "Shaft" is the enduringly classic example of the genre.) They are also frequently imaginative and entertaining. This set from Alpha Video Classics contains two action films with largely black casts. I had heard of "The Black Six," and wanted to see the intriguing casting of football stars. I had never heard of the outrageously titled "The Black Gestapo" before, and it's by far the weirder and more divisive of the two.

"The Black Gestapo" is an angry film that starts with the setup of a black revolutionary group, "The People's Army," led by General Ahmed (Rod Perry) who is fighting off white pushers in Watts. His second in command, Colonel Kojah (Charles Robinson) is a power grabber with fighting and malice in his heart. While Ahmed truly wants to help his people be independent and to overcome their problems, Kojah is simply a thug who seeks to replace the white pushers and criminals with his own. At the outset it appears that the entire film is nothing more than an endorsement of extremism, but Ahmed actually turns out to be a sympathetic character (despite the early 1940's jackboot imagery used.) The acting is quite poor and generally over the top, and this copy has poor quality sound and picture.

The concept is that under the effective control of Kojah, the People's Army descends to the level of the mob and puts out hits and the like: the attack on "Vito" (Phil Hoover; no stereotyping there...

Unfortunately, when I come across these hard to find cinematic gems sometimes the source of the material is poor as in the case of both features on this disc. I am fortunate enough to have a copy however I would love to have viewed these features, especially The Black Gestapo in pristine print form, sadly this is not the case. Both films are fine examples of the by gone era of Blaxploitation, certainly not on the same level of The Mack or Black Caesar or Coffy, but these films have heart an imagination on a shoestring budget that would not be enough to pay for lunch on a single day of any major movie set. If you enjoy Blaxploitation you may want to pick this Double Feature up, just keep in mind the quality of the print is going to make you feel like you are watching an old VHS tape that was rented out once to many times from the neighborhood Video Store.

I had seen advertisements for this movie years ago when I used to pass through the city more often, so eventually my curiosity got the best of me, so I decided to buy it. It actually has a good theme to it a la Animal Farm, in which one group overcomes the oppression of another group, then eventually itself becomes the oppressor, and has to have someone else come in and clean up the mess Rambo style. I also enjoyed passing down Memory Lane especially with the older cars.
