A well-pitched exercise in peak blaxploitation style more than an actual movie, with an all-timer of a soundtrack.

THE LEARNING TREE (1969)
The first ever studio movie from a Black director tells the semi-autobiographical story of its director growing up in 1920s Kansas, and I was actually pretty impressed with it as a movie.
He’s a Black private dick who’s a sex machine with all the chicks, but I found his movie not as interesting as one might think.
