Willie Dynamite

Movie Summary

Director:
Gilbert Moses
Released:
1974
Rating:
R
Willie Dynamite is a blacksploitation film about a New York City pimp game and is available on Netflix. Originally released in 1974, this blast from the past follows the story of a well-dressed pimp, named Willie Dynamite (Roscoe Orman Ð the same man who played Gordon on Sesame Street), who is vying for the number 1 pimping spot. But things aren't all that easy. The police are starting to crack down on the flesh merchants. Willie's classy hotel of hoes is no longer a viable means of income. He must now pair up with other pimps to stay afloat. It's too bad sharing isn't Willie's thing. With the heat just around the block, Willie is backed into a corner. He must make the choice between jail and leaving the business forever. The film makes an interesting transition from a colorful pimp expose to a gritty crime-doesn't-pay drama. In the end, Willie loses everything; even his mother has a heart attack. But walking away from the pimping business might be the best thing Willie has ever done.moreless
