    I beg to differ, Sam Yam. "Sad" would be my one word description of this film. Look not too far below this movie's hip surface, with the casual snorts and the copulation with submissive chicks and the martial arts and the driving, funky Curtis Mayfield score, and you will find an unhappy man, ironically named Priest, who is in no state of grace, who has wasted his life and knows it and is left at the end to walk away with enough money to last him a few years until he will be forced to take up one of those dead end jobs he so sedulously tried and failed to avoid. All of it is encapsulated in Ron O'Neal's tired body language and bitter, raging, dour personality. At no point in this film is he anything resembling contented. Great performance. Good film. (By the numbers, generic Blacksploitation screenplay keeps it from greatness.) Give it a B plus. P.S. The cheerless, grimy, winter in 70s NYC cinematography clues you in to director Gordon Parks' feelings about the rather uncool drug dealers and racist cops that populate his film. Obviously this movie was shot before Woody made it mandatory to love this harsh, heavy, deafening, exhausting city.
