Coffy - Dangerous Curves Ahead

Watched this one over a series of three nights. I didn’t watch many of these ‘blaxploitation’ films when they were first released (I was a little young, for one reason), but I’ve been curious to check them out after enjoying Pam Grier in Tarantino’s ‘Jackie Brown’. Some of the chase music from this film was adopted for use in the aforementioned film.

Pam Grier plays the title character, a woman whose little sister was used and abused by the drug trade, and she’s out for revenge on the various pushers, pimps and lowlifes who may have had a hand in her sister’s misfortune. She ends up sort of a surrogate avenger for the intended audience members, as her story unfolds and she ends up taking on the white bosses behind the scenes and the politicians and crooked cops who prey on the inner city black community. Dated and corny, overly violent and sometimes unintentionally funny, yet still manages to get some hard truths out there about the power behind the drugs that lay waste to the vulnerable members of our society. I had a hard time getting into this one at the start of it, but as the story unfolded, and I relaxed into it, it was a fun little revenge tale, and Pam Grier turns in a much better performance than this sort of thing deserved.
