This is not a great film, but it is one of the most important films in
The film suffers primarily because Parks isn't sure whether he wants to
direct a 'relevant' black crime drama - for which he doesn't really
have the money - or a film of the genre that became infamous as
"blaxploitation", which had at that time not yet achieved definition.
In other words, Parks is breaking new ground, and he wasn't sure
exactly what ground he is breaking. So the film tends to amble, and
sometimes even stagger, as it tries to define a goal for itself.
Nonetheless, this is the first film where a strong black man in a truly
heroic role - without the props of white liberal social blather, and
without being borderline criminal - is portrayed without excuses or
apologies. Shaft is truly a hero of his time, part Sam Spade (& no
jokes here, please), part James Bond - and all man - intelligent, fast
to act, direct and always true to himself - he's nobody's "boy".
Although these qualities are in the script, the communication of the
message depends entirely on Richard Roundtree - one of the truly great
action actors of Hollywood history - hey, I'm a white boy, and I still
want to be this John Shaft! he's that cool. The marginalization of this
savvy and witty actor, due to the racism of Hollywood, is a real crime.
Well, for now, never mind; his performance alone carries this film, and
makes it a treasure; and no matter how badly Hollywood marginalizes
black action cinema, Roundtree's performance will continue to stand
tall, for many generations to come.
