Super Fly
"Undeniably exciting" is what Leonard Maltin calls this pioneering film that kicked off the entire "blaxploitation" action film genre of the 1970s. When you're born, raised and trapped in the ghetto, you want to get out any way you can - in this case, it's a Harlem drug dealer trying to set up a retirement fund before he quits the business for good. Directed by Gordon Parks, Jr. ("The Learning Tree"), and featuring the classic score by legendary Curtis Mayfield
