With "Coffy", Pam Grier showed that she could cream both the bad guys and the box office, but it was this film that catapulted her to a level of iconic stardom that not only preceded "Charlie's Angels", but provided the blueprint. Supa-bad Foxy Brown is a smart and sexy renegade out to exact revenge for the murder of her lover, who was an undercover federal agent. Behind the death is Miss Katharine (played with delicious, lupine subtlety by the late Katheryn Loder), a wicked madam who orders her bumbling drug-running henchman to do her evil bidding. Katharine's aided by her right-hand man, Steve, who later finds himself in quite a pickle when up against the fury of a woman scorned. Foxy's a whole lotta' woman who's got what it takes to beat the baddies at their own game---a voluptuous body (perfect for going undercover as one of Miss Katherine's prostitutes), a pistol-packin' Afro, and, most importantly, a "black belt in barstools". Backed by Jack Hill's slick direction and a crunchy, soulful Willie Hutch soundtrack, this movie is a modern classic that surpasses the Blaxploitation genre in which it evolved.
