“The Roommates” and “A Woman For All Men” are two sexually charged films from the later years of the Nixon Administration. You’ve seen more skin online, but what about that kitschy plot? Both films are pretty obscure and have been hard as hell to find on home video compared to director Arthur Marks’ other Blaxploitation epics.
The video loaded into the top player is an interview that Marks did for the vastly superior “Bonnie’s Kids”. But, it gives you the tone of what Marks was doing in this era. These Sexploitation films are about a step above the Cheerleader movies that Jack Hill was doing at the same time. However, the sexual politics of using women in these films as currency will cause a few viewers to wince.
The Blu-Ray comes with a commentary, featurettes, trailer and TV spots as the special features. The A/V Quality is pretty astonishing for films of this age. The 1080p transfer really pops with insane clarity. If that wasn’t enough, the DTS-HD mono track remains period appropriate. For those that need it, you also get DVD copies of the films. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to cult fans.
