Jack Latimore reviews Wrong Type of Black. 

'Largely set in the inner-city north of 1970s Melbourne, and co-written by Pryor himself with Nick Musgrove, Wrong Kind of Black concisely portrays the racial tensions and Aboriginal rights issues that were waging amid the exuberant popular trends of the era.

'Twenty-something Monty – played by Wolf Creek’s Clarence Ryan – has relocated from north Queensland to Melbourne, where as a former male model and now DJ at the vibrant Albion Charles hotel in north Fitzroy, he is cruising in style, replete with deadly ’fro, flares and funky chunky-soled leather boots. He is one superfly Aborigine, going by the stage name of “the Black Superman”. His mission: to deploy his decks to transform angry patrons into happy, drunk ones.' (Excerpt).
