I watched Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song this afternoon and felt for the first time that it was perhaps showing its age.

It may just have been me. The topicality is still obviously there - it is, after all, "about a brother getting the Man's foot out of his ass" - but some of the settings creaked, there was less punch to the dialog than I remembered.

I'd be grateful for any relevant observation from the membership.
