Film #267: FOXY BROWN
3 out of 5 stars
A rewatch! A classic blaxploitation flick starring the beautiful Pam Grier. Anyone who is even slightly into this genre has seen this, so I’ll skip the synopsis. Just know that Grier is someone you simply cannot take your eyes off of and her revenge is a sweet - albeit short - one. Look for Sid Haig in a minor role, Antonio Fargas (Huggy Bear from STARSKY & HUTCH) as the backstabbing brother, and television staple Peter Brown as one of the main villains. But it is Grier who steals this rather low budget show with her sassy yet capable demeanor. Again, fans of blaxploitation will have already seen this, but those interested in the genre might consider starting here.
