Otis Day in Which Way Is Up?

Which Way Is Up?

1977 R

A seriocomic tale of love, seduction and betrayal in the strife-torn farm country of central California, Which Way Is Up? is one of Richard Pryor's best and most underrated films. Pryor plays several roles here, most significantly a migrant orange picker who works his way up in the ranks of an agricultural company -- first becoming a labor union hero and then a corporate womanizing flunky.
