If you're looking for a masterclass in the 1970s Blaxploitation film movement, Super Fly will almost inevitably make the syllabus. A crime drama starring the late Ron O'Neal as its magnetic antihero, the movie is searing, violent, moving, upsetting, exultant and -- well, just come prepared for a landmark film you're not likely to see, even truncated and censored, on cable TV. Bonus: You will never forget the soundtrack -- Curtis Mayfield's Superfly, a landmark of classic soul, which actually out-grossed the film.

Night 3 of the Black Cinematheque Filmmaker Series presents the 1972 blaxploitation classic directed by Gordon Parks Jr. An after party will follow the screening. The filmmaker series, hosted by the Texas Theatre and the South Dallas Cultural Center, continues on Feb. 18 & 24. Admission to each program is $1.
