Bonkers Ass Cinema: Disco Godfather

Opens on May 13

Director: J. Robert Wagoner Run Time: 93 min. Rating: R Release Year: 1979

Starring: Carol Speed, Jerry Jones, Jimmy Lynch, Lady Reed, Rudy Ray Moore

Tagline: Rudy Ray Moore’s last film finds the comedian fighting crime as a part-time police detective and full-time disco operator. After his nephew Bucky overdoses on angel dust—“The Whack”—Moore’s character Tucker William sets out on a personal mission to take down the drug pin responsible with a mix of kung fu, community organizing, and nonstop boogieing. A drug message film notorious for destroying Moore’s film career, Disco Godfather stands the test of time as his most ambitious and strangest offering—a perfect coda to the blaxploitation cycle.

 This edition of Bonkers Half-Assed Midnights will present the film in its 2K restoration from the original camera negative!
