Queen of the Explotation Flicks?,
This review is from: Foxy Brown [VHS] (VHS Tape)
FOXY BROWN is a great movie, but not a great explotation movie. Oddly enough this is the film that got Pam Gier the title "QUEEN OF THE EXPLOTATION FLICKS". When I first sat down to watch this film I was expecting to see tons of gratuitous nudity and violence. The nudity in this film was seldom and the violence was not very graphic. Don't get me wrong, I loved this film and it really is a classic 70's film, but don't go in expecting the normal 70's gratuity. The story is about a woman that becomes a vigilante in order to get revenge for the death of her boyfriend. The plot thickens when other elements are thrown into play like a drug addict younger brother, an underground militant army, and a mother forced into prostitution. If you like this film, but you also really like gratuitous nudity and violence; I would highly recommend watching COFFY. Pam Grier is the star of that movie also, but the storyline is a little more loose and there is nudity all over the place (including Grier).

Nudity and graphic violence are not what make a exploitation movie. Im guessing you really didnt grow up on them or know what they really are, you came in way after the fact and assumed thats what makes one based off reading things online written by other people who also have no idea. Really if nudity and graphic violence is all you care about then youre better off not looking for exploitation films, as youll find a lot more in other genres.
