    Priest is a prince of the streets, a charismatic businessman who wants out of cocaine-dealing. But a mysterious kingpin doesn’t want Priest to change his ways. And that triggers murder, revenge and double-crosses that push Priest into a corner — and heat the neighborhood to flash point.

    Super Fly is one of the more enduring streetwise films of its era, due to the dynamic central performance of Ron O’Neal (Red Dawn, Original Gangstas), the sizzling score by Curtis Mayfield and the gritty direction of the late Gordon Parks, Jr. (Three the Hard Way, Aaron Loves Angela). Super Fly is super entertainment with an indelible message. It’s life on the edge, put together by talents who know just how sharp it can get.

    Everytime I've seen this, it looks like 10th gen VHS.

    This is a great film, possibly the best blaxploitation picture (imo) next to SWEET SWEETBACK... It's certainly the pimp-era blaxploitation picture that all other pimp-era blaxploitation films wish they were.

    It's a shame Parks Jr's life was taken in that airplane accident in '79, as his was a distinctive 'voice' and he stepped out of his father's shadow. (And his father was, legitimately, one of the greatest documentary photographers of the 20th Century.) I don't think the footage from the film he was making, REVENGE, has ever surfaced. More's the pity.

    If ever a film deserved an isolated soundtrack, it would be this one. Great fuckin' music from Mayfield.(Back in college I found the soundtrack album in the cut out bin for fifty cents).
