Scored by Booker T. & the MG’s, Uptight (1968) was a landmark collaboration between activist and actress Ruby Dee and director Jules Dassin. Set in Cleveland in the wake of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination, a band of black activists begin arming themselves for a revolution.
Dir: Jules Dassin / 1968 / US / 104 min
“The politically trenchant Uptight was a natural extension of what Ruby Dee had been striving to do since the early days of her career: to combine art with activism.” – Ina Archer, Criterion
“The passions and beliefs of black militants are presented head-on, with little in the way of comfort for white liberals.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
