BaadAsssss Cinema is a 2002 documentary film, directed by Isaac Julien. Julien looks at the Blaxploitation era of the 1970s in this hour-long documentary.

Synopsis

With archive film clips and interviews, this brief look at a frequently overlooked historical period of filmmaking acts as an introduction rather than a complete record. It features interviews with some of the genre's biggest stars, like Fred Williamson, Pam Grier, and Richard Roundtree. Director Melvin Van Peebles discusses the historical importance of his landmark film Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song. For a contemporary perspective, the excitable Quentin Tarantino offers his spirited commentary and author/critic bell hooks provides some scholarly social analysis.

The documentary mainly focuses on the connection between events in the United States during the last century and the attraction that horror films have to moviegoing audiences. Filmmakers, producers, and historians such as John Carpenter, George A. Romero, Tom McLoughlin, and Mick Garris examine and give their opinions on such links between occurring events and horror movie themes. The discussion first begins with the connections found between World War I and films featuring human-like monsters and ideas, such as Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Seventh Victim. The topic then moves on to World War II and the Holocaust, and the widespread atomic paranoia associated with B movies of the 1950s like Tarantula and Creature with the Atom Brain.

Film, documentaire, livre...: l'aventure tragique du jeune Christopher McCandless pose d'inévitables interrogations. Distinguons le vrai du faux. Son nom est Christopher McCandless. Son histoire, à travers le film Into the Wild, a largement été popularisée. Car le natif de Virginie reste l'exemple même de l'aventurier qui a tout plaqué pour vivre son rêve. Qui a embrassé la liberté, non pas du bout des lèvres, mais à pleine bouche. Qui s'est affirmé comme une exception ayant réussi à s'extirper du capitalisme triomphant et de l'existence stéréotypée qui lui tendait les bras.
