Summary
  • Sweet sweetback's baadasssss song: A young hustler's aimless pleasure-seeking turns to radicalism after witnessing the beating of a Black revolutionary by two white cops
  • Baadasssss: A candid portrait of Melvin Van Peebles' struggles as a young, black director during the society-shifting 70's. Determined to make a film that matters, Melvin deals with two-faced backers, a rag-tag crew, threatening creditors, and various shades of Hollywood hypocrisy. With everything on the line, his only choice is to stick to his guns and do whatever it takes to get his neo-blaxploitation epic to the audience for which it was envisioned
