Tag: Jack Hill


Made quickly, cheaply and released only a year after COFFY (Pam Grier and filmmaker Jack Hill’s wildly successful first feature together), FOXY BROWN announces not only itself but its titular character before the feature even begins properly. The audience is treated to a psychedelic opening credits sequence that would not seem out of place prior to a 007 picture, outside of the ubiquitous afros. This brief, but striking, ordeal climaxes with Grier in character taking aim at the camera and firing a round directly at the viewer, basically laying to waste any pre-conceived notions regarding an attractive female lead.
