1974. USA. Dir: Jack Hill. With Pam Grier, Antonio Fargas. 94 min.
Grier’s follow-up to COFFY cemented her status as a female blaxploitation icon – smart,
charismatic, ready to kick ass and look fine doing it. Here Foxy enacts revenge with
righteous brutality, burning and castrating the drug- and whore-traffickers who killed
her man. Is this film sleazy? Is it empowering? Can it be both? Speaker: Prof. Scott
Higgins, Film Studies.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
