      Audience Member Recorded in a block of Blaxploitation films on cable recently, this was more of a riff on the old Romeo and Juliet story, with a mixed race couple finding trouble from all sides in mid-'70s NYC. Well worth a look and something I would definitely like to revisit. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews
