Considered one of the most controversial and popular “classics” of the blaxploitation genre, Superfly stars Ron O’Neal as the coke-dealing Priest, named as such because he carries his samples in a crucifix. When he decides he wants out of “the life,” he plans his biggest deal yet, but the Mob he works for has other ideas. Film features a soundtrack by Curtis Mayfield.
