Football star turned blaxploitation fixture Fred Williamson stars in Cohen’s inspired remake of Little Caesar, in which a Harlem youth ascends from shoeshine to mob overlord, set to an irresistible original soundtrack by James Brown. As brutal a work of social realism as it is a cracking entertainment.
