"28.1. Koska elokuvan käsikirjoitus on puutteellinen tai sitä ei ole olemassakaan, niin "Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Songissa" soitetaan funkkia ja liikutetaan kameraa intensiivisillä ajoilla läpi erilaisten rakenteiden(molekyylipilvien, pölyhiukkasten, kääpiöplaneettojen, maanalaisten tunneliverkostojen, mustien aukkojen... Tähän voisi luetella vielä vaikka miten paljon kaikkea, koska kuvasta tai sisällöstä ei vaan kerta kaikkiaan saanut vittu mitään selvää) aina välistä p"

Blaxploitation films I've seen (32 movies items)

"Alussa tummaihoinen pikkupoika nussii huomattavasti vanhempaa naista, muuttuu sitten Sweet Sweetbackiksi ja äkkiä kuvataan jotain lihavaa neekeriä skeidalla vauvanmyssy päässään ja pyyhkimässä persettään yhden ainoan kerran, vieläpä pinkillä toalettipaprulla. Ei siitä sen enempää. Ääniraita on kuralla, TomHenrya lainatakseni "kuva on aivan liian tummaa, jotta siitä saisi selvää" ja rasistista sontaa lukuunottamatta mitään sisältöä ei tunnu irtoavan. Funkahtavalla sound"

"Katsottu: 5.5.2012 ”Elokuva voisi olla hyvä, mutta tästä ei saa mitään selvää, koska kuva on niin tumma.” Tässä lainaus TomHenryn suusta. Ei siinä mitään, koska tämä ei ollut elokuva. Tämä oli suuri paskakikare, johon oli ripoteltu aivan törkeästi rasismia. Suoraan sanottuna en muista tästä mitään muuta kuin Tompan kommentin. Se kuvastaa tätä parhaiten."

" Violent, politically radical and sexually transgressive, Melvin Van Peebles' indie movie reflected the simmering rage of disillusioned African-Americans."

The 67 Most Influential Films Ever Made (67 movies items)

"Influential, How? Black cinema finds a voice. Dedicated to “all the Brothers and Sisters who have had enough of The Man”, Sweet Sweetback's... is the first 'blaxploitation' flick. It's a full-frontal attack on honky hegemony as hero Sweetback fights and fucks his way through corrupt white cops and lurid whorehouses. Black Panther Huey P Newton praised it as “the first truly revolutionary black film.” Money Shot: Handcuffed Sweetback beating up a couple of racist rozzers. "

'Mainstream' films with unsimulated sex (72 movies items)

"1971 Director/actor Melvin Van Peebles appears in several real sex scenes. The first sex scene with his son Mario was faked. Van Peebles contracted a sexually transmitted disease while filming and successfully filed for worker's compensation. While the sex scenes may have been explicit and the actor maintains that they were real, nothing is shown onscreen that could not have been faked. Nonetheless, after Peebles came up with the winning ad slogan "rated X by an all-white jury" the film's ratin"
