Hello all. This is the best movie of the 70's and one of the best of all time. If you haven't seen it yet you must see it soon. This is probably Lawrence Hilton Jacobs's first starring role. He is great in the movie and he is very underrated. Glynn Turman shines as Preach. He is also very underrated. This whole movie really captured what it was like back in the 60's for young blacks. It is heartwrenching and very moving. It has comedy and it has heartache. I recommend that everyone see this movie. It is the best. You will not be disappointed.
