There's a mob war brewing between the white Mafia and the black gang headed by Bumpy Jonas, and no one in Manhattan knows why — except for private eye John Shaft. He's been hired by Bumpy to find the gang boss' kidnapped daughter, and now the police and the mob are on Shaft's case. What they didn't count on is that Shaft is a man who can take care of himself. Gordon Park's seminal 1971 blaxploitation film Shaft has a solid story, a terrific leading man in Richard Roundtree and that pulsating soundtrack by Isaac Hayes. Set all that against the grimy backdrop of '70s New York, and you have the perfect crime flick. The Tivoli's Reel Late film series presents Shaft at 11:55 p.m. Friday and Saturday (July 21 and 22) at the Landmark Tivoli Theatre (6350 Delmar Boulevard, University City; Tickets are $8.
