The 50 Best Blaxploitation Movies

1. The Mack (1973)

Director: Michael Campus
Stars: Max Julien, Don Gordon, Richard Pryor

Goldie returns from San Quentin to run the pimp game in Oakland. Top to bottom and front to back one of the best films of the decade, in any genre—it's a classic for the Player's Ball alone, not to mention Richard Pryor trying to act serious and not doing such a great job of it ("You white nigger!"). Attention rappers and "entertainment company" CEOs: if you want to learn what real game is, take a lesson from the original and ask yourself...who's the mack?
