The Mack

Just fresh from a screening of The Mack and not having seen it in some years I'd forgotten how good the film is. It's not the best Blaxploitation picture but it does has some of the best moments of the whole Blax cycle - Max Julien having at red carpet moment, dressed to the nines at the Player's Ball, Roger Mosley raising black consciousness, Richard Pryor having a meltdown, Don Gordon's drunken rant at a big bosomed hooker (which I think was referenced in True Romance if memory serves me right), and some inventive nastiness - a man locked inside the trunk of a car with a pack of rats, a mafioso injected with battery acid, and a gangster blown to bits with a stick of dynamite in his mouth. Essential viewing ya dig ?
