A Movie Lover’s Favorites to get you through the pandemic #10: Shaft (1971). I saw it with my family when I was eleven. What was Dad thinking? (We all had a great time.) The movie has one of the best opening sequences ever filmed and was wildly innovation its day. Theme from Shaft won Isaac Hays a well deserved Oscar. The movie is a standout of the Blaxploitation movement. It’s a little dated, but who cares? “Who is the man who would risk his life for his brother man” still resonates. Watch it on Pay-per-view and feel the groove.

A MOVIE LOVER’S FAVORITES TO GET YOU THROUGH THE PANDEMIC #3: Wings of Desire

A Movie Lover’s favorites to get you through the pandemic #3: Wings of Desire (1987). This German movie is the cinematic equivalent of great jazz. It’s a mood piece about an angel who tires of helping others and falls in love with a woman. The scene where they meet will stir your soul. The film is poetic and haunting. Watch it with someone you love and you will love them more deeply when it’s over.
