breathtaking
30 May 2000 | by (High wycombe, england) – See all my reviews

One of the greatest films to emerge from the blaxploitation period. Breathtaking. Williamsons amazing direction prove he is one of the greatest auteurs in black american film history, if not the greatest of them all. A true shame his work is often overshadowed by "Shaft" and "Sweet Sweetbacks Baaadasss Song".
