    Important for it's historical significance, as a constructed film it's a mess

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

    Melvin Van Peebles was a true visionary. With this beautifully crafted art house head trip of a film, Peebles created a new kind of cinema that was made by and for the black community and is an ode to the struggle that black Americans have to go through just to survive in this country. A truly powerful film that gave a new shade of color to the cinematic hero.

    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.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  19. 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.
