Killer of Sheep
Dir. Charles Burnett (1977).
Originally released in the virtual vacuum of the late 1970s, Charles Burnett's neo-neo-realist, post-Cassavetes account of a dreamy Watts butcher and his family gradually established itself as an Amerindie classic as well as founding text of the new African-American cinema.
