Storyline

A sinister, neurotic white girl Lula, with the provocation of her lovely, half-naked body and of her startlingly lascivious speech, lures to his doom a good-looking young black man Clay, a stranger whom she has picked up in the subway and whom she mocks for wearing the clothes and employing the voice and manners of the conventional white intellectual. The man, who, at first seeing no reason to resist the girl's advances, perceives too late that he is being used by her, drops his "white" disguise, and launches a wild and bitter counterattack on her and on the entire white race.

Revolutionary Play Adapted to Screen
17 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

When you first watch the movie, it seems pretty out there, with okay acting and an overly tragic ending seen miles in advance. . .But the script (orignially a two act play) helped shape our nation and our literature today.

The play's by Amiri Baraka, who still writes today. At the time of it's debut on Broadway, Baraka was a highly acclaimed playwright/poet -- still is for that matter. Written in 1964 at the turning of a nation the play held up the ideals of many African-Americans as well as the feelings of many European-Americans in the nation. It ruffled feathers, screams out the beliefs of both sides, and was honest. The play was somewhat autobiographical (Baraka was born LeRoi Jones in New Jersey, went to college, and was married to - though soon after this play divorced - a white woman), and shows the starts of a man who was on his way to becoming an inspirational factor of the Black movement.

This version of the play is worth viewing if you are interested in the tensions of this time period, or knowing a bit more about African-American ideas of the time. I gave it a six due to its historical connections rather than acting or directorial credibilities.
