This original film is so wicked. Directed by the father of the guy who made Superfly. It’s a serious drama/action movie where Shaft is investigating the kidnapping of a local mob boss’ daughter.
The opening is Shaft walking around with the famous theme (that won an oscar – you dig?) playing and Shaft just being cool and walking around. He is wearing a brown leather jacket that should’ve won an oscar for “best jacket worn by a character in film history.” – I would’ve voted for that!
Just buy this movie and the rest of them. Shaft is so wicked!
