Foxy Brown

Overview

Following the success of Coffy, Foxy Brown firmly established actress Pam Grier as the queen of blaxploitation films. The film grain seen in the early night scenes on this DVD soon vanishes, leaving a funky and fantastic 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen print.

Overview

Following the success of Coffy, Foxy Brown firmly established actress Pam Grier as the queen of blaxploitation films. The film grain seen in the early night scenes on this DVD soon vanishes, leaving a funky and fantastic 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen print. The disc has French and Spanish subtitles, a lone English soundtrack, and the theatrical trailer. The only other feature is a definite bonus: an audio commentary by director Jack Hill. Hill, in between comments that reflect his obvious fondness for his actors, details his battles with the production company American International Pictures, which wanted him to produce a low-cost, sex- and violence-laden flick in order to generate quick revenue. Hill had been inspired by reading African-American author James Baldwin's The Fire Next Time and wanted to insert social commentary into the script. The result of this battle makes for a highly informative and entertaining commentary track for a curious piece of 1970s nostalgia.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Jack Hill's successful follow-up to the brutal blaxploitation hit Coffy manages to top that drive-in favorite by piling on twice the action and outrageousness. The B-movie revenge plot is nothing new, but works nicely thanks to Hill's flair for infusing commonplace plots with colorful moments that give them a new lease on life. The highlights in this vein include a fight in a lesbian bar and the Black Panther-inspired "community watch" group that keeps pushers off the ghetto streets. Hill also turns in some nice work behind the camera, slyly alternating light comedy and brutal action to keep the audience off guard and maintaining a lean pace that keeps the film crackling with the energy of a good B-movie. However, Foxy Brown's top asset is Pam Grier's performance. No matter how strange the situation is, Grier plays the material straight and fuels her characterization with charm and intelligence to create a truly memorable B-movie heroine. Other performances of note include Antonio Fargas as Foxy's shifty drug dealer brother and Kathryn Loder as the snooty but twisted madam who tangles with the heroine. Ultimately, Foxy Brown may be a little too twisted and violent for the average viewer, but remains a one-of-a-kind grindhouse epic guaranteed to satisfy anyone who craves blaxploitation at its fastest and funkiest.

    "I've got My black belt in barstools!"

    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.
