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.
3 stars (Good Enough) Unexpectedly funny & informative; well worthy watching. Great interviews with black stars - let alone Tarantino - who also has much to say! Excellent extras. Female stars are similarly exploited financially by Hollywood- see NZ Herald A34 24/08/17~Sandy
