Don’t miss one of the earliest and most important blaxploitation films ever made.
Dir Gordon Parks
With Richard Roundtree, Moses Gunn, Charles Cioffi
Isaac Hayes’ soul soundtrack is a funky, jazz-infused masterpiece that provides added texture to the film as we follow private eye John Shaft, trying to track down a mobster’s daughter who’s been kidnapped by the mafia. One of the earliest and most important blaxploitation films, Shaft is in a class of its own.
