African-American Films

54 posts in this topic

So I've caught up with the TV shows I can be bothered with and there's only like 2 downloads a week now so I thought I'd fill the void with films I should have seen ages ago and I thought this would be a good category to start on. So.... can you guys list any African-American films that you've seen and would recommend? any genre: comedy, drama, thriller (thought I'd start with 'Don't Be A Menace...' cause it's the first download I've seen)Safethought I'd start off the topic by recommending this film, quite deep, would definitely recommendGeorge_Washington_Film.jpgGeorge Washington (2000)

Just googled that GW film quickly, looks decent, will have to check it out. I havent seen it but, the film called "precious" that just came out in America is meant to be quite good.

What do you mean by african american films, films that star/were directed by african americans? Ain't they just films?anywaysFresh (1994)MV5BMTc4OTU3NjQ5OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwNDgyMjcy._V1._SX450_SY301_.jpg

IMDB: Michael (or Fresh as he's well known) is a 12-year-old drug pusher who lives in a crowded house with his cousins and aunt. His father has become a street bum,but still meets with fresh on occasion to play chess. Fresh is rather quiet in a crazy world. Fresh' sister is a junkie who sleeps with the dealers that fresh sells for. As the story progresses Fresh realizes that he doesn't want to sell drugs anymore, he wants revengeI think the whole film is on youtube, heres the playlist starting from scene 1

Panther
This film is big, I have wanted to get it on DVD for so long but they don't sell it in England. /X(if that even counts), all the spike lee classics, Jungle Fever, Do the Right Thing, Mo' Better Blues, Crooklyn, She Gotta Have It, School Daze, He Got Game. <<< Some bangers.
