Part of Music City Mondays: Blaxploitation.

Career criminal and coke dealer Priest (Ron O’Neal) seeks to escape the drug game with one last big score. Gordon Parks Jr. (the son of SHAFT’s director, Gordon Parks Sr.) directs this no-holds-barred depiction of the day-to-day life of a man seeking to break the shackles of systemic economic oppression by the only means available to him. The cool-as-ice tone set by Curtis Mayfield’s unparalleled score was criticized by many black activists and critics at the time for glorifying the drug scene and black stereotypes, but has been heralded in recent years and was the subject of a remake released in June.
