Can you dig it? Endlessly cool private eye John Shaft is hired by Bumpy, a crime lord to find and retrieve his daughter who was kidnapped by the mafia. With tons of badass action in the streets and in the sheets, a killer soundtrack by Isaac Hayes (the theme song won Hayes the Academy Award), direction from groundbreaking photographer Gordon Parks, and one of the slickest protagonists in 70s cinema, Shaft is the ultimate Blaxploitation classic. And we can dig it!
