Screencap from the 1976 blaxploitation film "The Monkey Hu$tle"

Micro-review of the Arthur Marks film "The Monkey Hu$tle" (This triggers the Fair Use clause.):

The movie is a 5/10. The plot is just as nonsensical as the average low-budget children's cartoon, but the characters don't entirely suck. The soundtrack gets a 10/10, purely on some of the basslines.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/Arthur Marks; Used under Fair Use.
