He’s A Complicated Man

Who’s the black private dick that’s a sex machine to all the chicks? Shaft wasn’t the first blaxploitation flick (most folks cite Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song) but it’s probably the most famous…due in no small part to the fact that it was released by MGM and had an award-winning soundtrack by Isaac Hayes…Its witty, action-packed script and Richard Roundtree’s cool, confident, suave performance helped make it not only a huge hit that proved blaxploitation was bankable but a timeless classic of hardboiled detective cinema that still holds up today…
