Directed by Bill Gunn | 1980

With Verta Mae Grosvenor, Jim Wright, Walter Cotton

Iconoclastic director Bill Gunn—best known for his experimental Afro-vampire movie Ganja & Hess and for penning Hal Ashby’s The Landlord—teamed up with noted writer Ishmael Reed for what the latter described as “a look at the triteness of everyday life in black middle class America.” The result is this satirically subversive soap opera that plays like an irony-tinged anti-Jeffersons.
