John Shaft was indeed a shut-your-mouth detective to reckon with, a fact emphasized from the film's start by Isaac Hayes' Academy Award-winning Best Original Song and Oscar-nominated score. Richard Roundtree plays the smart, tough, confident lead, a private investigator whose hunt for a kidnapped woman puts him in the middle of feuding syndicates. Gordan Parks directs from a screenplay that Ernest Tidyman (that same year's Oscar-winner for The French Connection) co-scripted from his own novel. John Shaft is an icon of change from an era of change. Today, Shaft still tells it like it is. Directorial debut of Hong Kong cinematographer Derek Wan (Jet Li’s FIST OF LEGEND, Michelle Yeoh’s ROYAL WARRIORS). Music Score by Vernon Reid of the multi-platinum, 2- time Grammy Award- winning rock band, Living Colour.
