SWEET SWEETBACK’S BAADASSSSS SONG

aka SWEET SWEETBACK
United States | 1971 | Melvin Van Peebles

SWEET SWEETBACK’S BAADASSSSS SONG

Here’s a new restoration of the seminal movie that helped launch the whole blaxploitation craze, though it’s more of an independent art film than an exploitation movie. Melvin Van Peebles produced, wrote, directed, edited, scored, and starred in this angry, blistering, hallucinatory tale of a stud on the run after being accused of killing two corrupt cops. It’s dedicated “to all the Brothers and Sisters who have had enough of The Man.” No one under 18 admitted! Cleveland revival premiere. DCP. 97 min.

Film courtesy of Xenon Pictures, Vinegar Syndrome, and the American Genre Film Archive.
