Foxy Brown (1974)
Amid a funky early 70s soundtrack she gets her revenge through a number of ever more grisly action set pieces. Its not a subtle movie thats for sure but is rightly held up as one of the best movies in its genre. Although fairly low budget and lacking the effects and polish of movies nowadays the movie is pretty hard hitting and showing stuff that would be largely shied from today (or hidden in a CGI fest).
Foxy Brown is a period film, and dated in so many ways but the outlandish early 70s feel is a large part of the charm. The plot is pretty ridiculous of course if you stop to think about it but that would be largely missing the point. Its a fantasy. So get your jive ass down the video store brother.
