Written, directed and produced by Melvin Van Peebles, this comedic tall tale of a love story also stars the 75-year-old filmmaker as the title character, in a slightly autobiographical epic adventure that spans from boyhood to middle age. Our hero encounters all sorts of characters, from Harlem hustlers to African dictactors to swashbuckling pirates (including son Mario Van Peebles), in his quest for riches, thrills and love.
