    The strangest movie I have ever seen.

  4. Ethan's rating of the film Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song

    Melvin Van Peebles gives life to the blaxploitation in this superb film that is the definition of guerilla filmmaking. Peebles made it look like he was shooting a porn film so he could go non-union and hire whoever he wanted to. The making of this film is even more interesting than this film which Peebles son Mario made into a movie.

  6. msmichel's rating of the film Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song

    Revolutionary influential film starring 'The Black Community' that proved to Hollywood circa '71 that there was an audience for black cinema. Wildly edited and guerilla shot the film still has a vibrancy that burns the screen and is a riveting watch. Soundtrack, by Earth Wind and Fire, is perfect in capturing both time period and events. Alas, Peebles would never make anything else up to the standard shown here.

  7. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song

    Maybe more important than it is an actual great film. But nevertheless its full of fireworks and revolt

  8. Den-Leroy Kangalee's rating of the film Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song

    Brilliant and avant-garde - especially for its time. A cinematic "Native Son," it is a layered, dense, and conflicted film. Huey P.Newton wrote a famous essay on the film. This movie that depicts a black man fighting back AGAINST a racist system became unfortunate fodder for racist Hollywood when they peddled "exploitation" films. Peebles, along with Park, and Gunn -- was a cinematic revolutionary.

  17. Scout Tafoya's rating of the film Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song

    The start of a movement....also, the only film I can think of where the Director's guild compensated someone for getting the clap on set.
