The Character of Foxy Brown in Hollywood

The movie begins with Pam Grier as a teen, who is standing on a train. Right after this, her parents are killed by “Killer” played by the late Paul Benjamin. She flees from Ohio to avoid being captured and killed. This is where she learns of “Foxy Brown” and her fighting skills. Pam Grier takes up the name Foxy Brown and goes to jail in order to get revenge. This is where she meets “Killer’s” younger brother, “Skank”. Foxy Brown and “Skank” then go on a killing spree to get revenge for the death of her parents. At the end of the film, Foxy Brown and “Skank” are killed by a group of corrupt police officers. This film shows that women can be strong and independent people. It also states that women can fight back against those who have taken their families from them. Another thing this movie states is that a person can have revenge for the death of their family no matter the circumstance.

How Foxy Brown became a cult Figure for Independent Women

The film, Foxy Brown is a cult classic and has become a figure for independent women. The movie starts off with Pam Grier as a teenager trying to protect her family from “Killer”. She goes to jail in order to get revenge for their deaths. She is in jail for several years until “Skank” meets her in the cell block. This is where they form a new gang, which fights against the law and society. The “Black Power Movement” of the ’60s and ’70s were a huge part of this film’s success. The “Black Power Movement” of the 1960s and 1970s was a big part of this movie’s success. In particular, black women have been very supportive of this movie through the years. This movie portrays black women in a positive way; independent, strong and powerful. Pam Grier and Foxy Brown are the symbols of empowerment and strength among black women. The character, “Foxy Brown” was a big role model for black women in the ’60s in particular. The film’s success is mostly credited to Pam Grier and her portrayal of Foxy Brown, because her costumes were very sexually-oriented as well as her language. The fact that this movie is about an African American woman on screen clearly shows there was a lack of black female characters in film at that time (and still today). It seems to have a great impact on the success of Foxy Brown. The director, Jack Hill has said “I’m not worried about the message it’s sending to anyone really. I’m just trying to make entertaining, exciting films” (Hill as qtd. in “Foxy Brown” 2006). He was not worried about the message of empowerment and independence it was sending out, but that is what made this film so great.
