|Plot||A sinister, neurotic white girl Lula, with the provocation of her lovely, half-naked body and of her startlingly lascivious speech, lures to his doom a good-looking young black man Clay, a stranger whom she has picked up in the subway and whom she mocks for wearing the clothes and employing the voice and manners of the conventional white intellectual. The man, who, at first seeing no reason to resist the girl's advances, perceives too late that he is being used by her, drops his "white" disguise, and launches a wild and bitter counterattack on her and on the entire white race.... see Dutchman on IMDb|

|A young, conservative black man, minding his own business, rides on an all-but-empty subway car. The only other passenger, a blond vixen, is looking his way and looking for trouble. Sexual tension, racial bigotry and righteous fury collide in a razor's edge confrontation. Writer LeRoi Jones' powerful and controversial play is faithfully adapted in this dramatically explosive and emotionally raw film made at the height of civil unrest in the '60s, with just as potent a message for today's audiences. Al Freeman, Jr. (Malcolm X) and two time Academy Award-nominee Shirley Knight (The Dark at the Top of the Stairs) sear the screen in this highly acclaimed award-winner from Oscar-nominated director Anthony Harvey (The Lion in Winter), with a ominously knowing score by Academy Award winner John Barry (Dances with Wolves).|
