What's fascinating is the way Mario, working from his father's autobiography and his own memories, has somehow used his first-hand experience without being cornered by it.

One of the best looks at a period in American film to be seen in a long, long while. BaadAsssss Cinema has meat on its bones and analysis in its soul.
This movie is more wistful and winking, though it's obvious Mario is still working out emotional baggage with his tyrannically driven old man.
The beauty of Baadasssss! is the way Mario Van Peebles salutes his father's truth by coaxing it into legend.
