Aro Recommended BaadAsssss Cinema

Dir. Isaac Julien
Rating: [Exempt]
Genres: Documentary, Cult / Blaxploitation, Film History


Aroview: A fan's-eye-view of 1970s Blaxploitation cinema, featuring juicy interviews with players, directors, critics and aficionados.

Although essentially an 'exploitation' genre, films such as SHAFT and SUPERFLY, ushered in many iconic talents, classic soundtracks and a raft of popular fashions - a fact celebrated here by the likes of Pam Grier, Richard Roundtree, Larry Cohen, Quentin Tarantino and Armond White. Though short, this introduction is nicely focused - the DVD featuring extended interview footage.
