Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song

Dir. Melvin Van Peebles (1971). Shot in a rough and ready style suggesting Stan Brakhage verite (and distributed like a porn film, complete with "X" rating), Melvin Van Peebles's single-minded paean to an L.A. whorehouse Stagolee single-handedly made the world safe for blaxploitation.
