The film is what you get when a Lifetime movie is given a bigger budget. Watch it if you have nothing better to do or like the ladies ;o)
(us) wrote: Beautiful cinematography, typically tragic storyline that you get with most (non-porn!) twin flicks. It was written by the twin brothers who stared in it, and the acting is wonderful.

(ag) wrote: Literally what the fuck did I just watch was my initial response when I finished watching Sweet Movie. A delightfully demented and disgusting orgy of culture, tasteless offense, and heavy political and social symbolism; it's almost as if director Dusan Makavejev is just piling up weird scenario after weird scenario to create his plot (which he essentially is), but the art of his film is that there actually is something else going on here, although I haven't the faintest idea what the majority of it might be, although I do have my hunches. The trick is to just sit back and enjoy. Which most people won't be able to do with a movie carrying themes of pedophilia (off-screen), both male and female genitalia (most definitely on-screen), the act of sex itself, and a scene involving a particularly disgusting full-body chocolate bath. I understand. But the weird humor of it all was sort of intoxicating and I can safely say I've never seen anything like it. It is art in a decidedly pure form.

(nl) wrote: Pre-dating SHAFT by a year, COTTON COMES TO HARLEM may be considered the real start of the blaxploitation genre; in any case, it actually outclasses SHAFT in nearly every way. The late, great Godfrey Cambridge stars, as detective Gravedigger Jones, alongside Raymond St. Jacques as his partner Coffin Ed Johnson. Cambridge and St. Jacques have a great rapport together; Gravedigger is cool, level-headed, and witty, while Coffin Ed is harsh and righteous, caring less about the fact that money was stolen than the fact that it was stolen from the poverty-stricken residents of Harlem. Cambridge is ideal in Gravedigger's witty moments, but the real delight, for Cambridge fans, is in seeing how smoothly he fits into the mechanics of a police procedural; his range is demonstrated well here, driving home the tragedy of his brief career. St. Jacques walks a fine line between hardass and parody, but never loses his balance; together, they make one of the best cop-partner teams I've ever seen. Calvin Lockhart does quite well as Deke O'Malley, the slick, charismatic leader of a "Back to Africa" movement; the gorgeous Judy Pace has a magnetically vicious energy as his suspicious lover. An added treat is Redd Foxx's small role as a good-natured bum, who stumbles upon the titular bale of cotton; he has a great scene with a junkdealer (Lou Jacobi) where they haggle over the cotton's price, and the final gag, involving him, is delightful. Cleavon Little, of BLAZING SADDLES fame, has an interesting cameo as a drug-addicted conman. Ossie Davis' direction is sharp and witty, overcoming the occasional convolutions of the script (co-written by him with Arnold Perl). The action scenes are thrilling, and the portrait of 70s Harlem is vivid, aided greatly by Gerald Hirschfeld's photography; Galt MacDermot's score is quite good as well. The plot, as noted, is a bit muddled at times, but one's attention is more than held throughout. An overlooked classic, COTTON COMES TO HARLEM isn't just perfect for blaxploitation fans, but also for fans of police dramas.
