Baadasssss Cinema

With archive film clips and interviews, this brief look at a frequently overlooked historical period of filmmaking acts as an introduction rather than a complete record. It features interviews with some of the genre's biggest stars, like Fred Williamson, Pam Grier, and Richard Roundtree. Director Melvin Van Peebles discusses the historical importance of his landmark film Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song. For a contemporary perspective, the excitable Quentin Tarantino offers his spirited commentary and author/critic bell hooks provides some scholarly social analysis.

Stefan G (ag) wrote: This is probably one of the most unique movies of the 1980's, mainly because of its realistic reflection on one of the most prevalent fears of the 20th century. It should be worth noting that the film only features two speaking characters, and the story revolves around the perspective of those characters. As the story unfolds, the two main characters slowly turn from being optimistic, to being nearly pessimistic as they near their eventual deaths amidst the nuclear fallout. I actually like the way the story progresses, mainly because it never resorts to sitcom logic, and with the characters, there's no overacting whatsoever. The main characters, at times, can come across as a bit stupid, but then again, this is from the perspective of two people who firmly believe that everything will be fine in the end. Even better is the fact that the ending leaves what happens next to your imagination. Coupled with good music and genuinely charming animation, this makes for a rare gem of British cinema.
