Product Description

Product Description

It s clear that Quentin Tarantino is a huge fan: he cast Grier in the title role of his direct homage Jackie Brown, while the one-woman revenge scenario that fuelled the Kill Bill films didn t just come from the Far East.

When Foxy Brown s undercover-agent boyfriend is gunned down on the orders of evil drug kingpins, she stops at nothing to exact a thrillingly brutal revenge. This is one of the all-time great blaxploitation films, pulling out all the stops at a time long before anyone thought of inventing political correctness.

Pam Grier was given the role of a lifetime as the street-smart yet intensely sexy Foxy, modelling a stupendously varied range of Seventies threads while righteously kicking villainous white butt at every opportunity. She s also given sterling support from Antonio Huggy Bear Fargas as her no-good younger brother and a memorably funky soundtrack.

“Who’s she think she is?”
“That’s my sister, baby, and she’s a whole lotta woman.”

Following their success with Coffy, Pam Grier and director Jack Hill carved up another prime slice of blaxploitation with Foxy Brown. She’s a black belt in bar stools, deadlier with a wire coathanger than Joan Crawford and if you get on the wrong side of her death is too good for you – she wants you to SUFFER. She can even wrap the local Black Panther wannabes around her little finger.

Having saved her worthless brother Antonio Fargas’ life from the drug dealers whose stash he’s lost, he promptly repays her by selling out her narcotics cop boyfriend’s new identity to them, setting her on the revenge trail after they predictably gun him down - after all, vigilante justice is as American as apple pie. Curiously, unlike the gangsta films of the 90s and beyond there’s a moral centre: it’s not about glorifying crime but taking back the neighborhood from the drug dealers who want to drag them down, as personified by Peter Brown’s gigolo and Kathryn Loder’s melodramatically overacting mastermind running her drugs and prostitution empire from a phoney modelling agency-cum-white (and black) slave ring. All the exploitation tropes are there – Grier gets her mamas out for the boys in her very first scene, there’s plenty of low-rent action so they can afford one big stunt at the end and the white professional killers become instantly inept when confronted by a black star with their name above the title – though a few are given bizarre spins, like a barroom brawl in a lesbian club or the exact nature of Foxy’s final revenge, which might put you off pickles for life.

Its slightly dated, but if you like your funky, big afro's, charlie's angel, bullets flying, chicks fighting..then you'll love this film. Pam Grier is the funky soul queen anyways, so thats worth a look.

After seeing Jackie Brown a couple of weeks ago and loving it, I decided to see the other films Pam Grier had done in the past. `Foxy Brown' is the second blaxploitation classic that I saw of her (first being White Mama, Black Mama), and it just blew me away. Though the script is flawed, and has some unrealistic characters, this only adds to the fun, campy nature of the film. The opening sequence rivals those of the James Bond films.

`Foxy Brown' features a brilliant lead performance from the hypnotically attractive Pam Grier, whose federal agent boyfriend is gunned down, and who sets out to fight for revenge and justice where the System has failed her and at the same time is matched at every turn by Antonio 'Huggy Bear' Fargas as her no-good younger brother. The rest of the performances are variable, and the budgets of these things did tend to preclude brilliant method actors! Jack Hill's direction keeps things ticking over nicely and the screenplay swings wildly between shock-horror tactics, tongue-in-cheek theatricality and even the occasional stab at gut-level farce.

In short, it's all very entertaining stuff. Fans of `The Hills Have Eyes' will be interested to see a small supporting role for Russ Grieve (Bob Carter in the aforementioned Wes Craven classic) as a corrupt high-up with a naked redhead on his knee, and Bob Minor turns in a sympathetic performance as the Black Panthers-styled vigilante that is light years away from his banal turn in `Carnel Madness' as the stereotypical sex-crazed vaudeville black. The funky score is another bonus that doesn't hurt a bit.

Foxy Brown is a definite must-see. The camera is certainly in love with her. Definitely one of the best, and most enjoyable blaxploitation films I've seen thus far.

When her boyfriend is murdered Foxy Brown goes undercover as an escort to get her revenge on those responsible.

Maybe the best of the 70's female blacksploitation pictures. Pam Grier is brilliant in the lead and really goes for it giving the role her all. The vigilante plot isn't all that original but highly entertaining none the less, something is always happening so pacing is actually really good and its 88mins passes quickly enough. Supporting roles are pretty much stick figures, for instance what happened to Claudia, however the boyfriend & brother have a better character arc, all do a very decent job and are easy to watch, the Willie Hutch soundtrack is excellent and really adds the over the top and fun atmosphere, there is also a brilliantly funny scene with the judge in a hotel room. The one issue with the film was the groping scene, when Foxy is tied up with the two sleazeballs at the farm, it just goes on a little too long and a bit uncomfortable in what is a "fun" vigilante picture.

Definitely one of the best of Pam Grier's blacksploitation films, a sassy, fun, enjoyable film that will have the audience cheering on our heroine, except the authorities here in Britain that is, when in the 80's they thought it should taken from the shelves as a section 3 nasty, ah the good old days!

This is a typical Pam Grier film. Antonio Fargus plays her hustler brother who gets her boyfriend killed by drug dealers. Pam plays the prostitute to go undercover and get the bad guys.

This was the era a whack-a-da music, wide lapels, chrome bumpers, screeching tires, and loud carburetors. Pam gets in some good lines as a prostitute. Very politically incorrect language by today's standards.

Guide: F-bomb, sex, implied rape, nudity (Pam Grier, Sharon Kelly, Sally Ann Stroud + others)
