"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.
