While the Black Power movement was reshaping America, trailblazing director GORDON PARKS (The Learning Tree) made this groundbreaking blockbuster, which helped launch the blaxploitation era and gave the screen a new kind of badder-than-bad action hero in John Shaft (Embassy’s RICHARD ROUNDTREE, in a career-defining role), a streetwise New York City private eye who is as tough with criminals as he is tender with his lovers. After Shaft is recruited to rescue the kidnapped daughter of a Harlem mob boss (Amazing Grace’s MOSES GUNN) from Italian gangsters, he finds himself in the middle of a rapidly escalating uptown vs. downtown turf war. A vivid time capsule of seventies Manhattan in all its gritty glory that has inspired sequels and multimedia reboots galore, the original Shaft is studded with indelible elements—from Roundtree’s sleek leather fashions to the iconic funk and soul score by ISAAC HAYES.

  • Am besten selber gucken

    Ich liess mir sagen, dass der Kult-Streifen der Blaxplotion - "Shaft" - brutal sei. Brutal cool trifft es schon eher. Da habe ich 12 Jahre lang nur den Oscar, Grammy und Golden Globe prämierten Soundtrack von Isaac Hayes (1942-2008) gekannt, und bin nur so geplettet vor Begeisterung! Ein Immergrün der Filmgeschichte.

    ambros seelos und blaxploitation-sounds??? klar, der hatte vielleicht für einen deutschen in den 70ern nicht schlecht den groove ... aber der richtig geile blaxploitation-sound kommt von isaac hayes, james brown und roy ayers ...
    und: the original is still the best! (beim shaft meinich)

    für mich immer noch der beste der shaft-filme. wer auf die musik dazu steht sollte unbedingt mal die "groove collection"-cd von ambros seelos abchecken. dort hat es einige titel dieser art drauf. blaxploitation-sounds vom feinsten!
