Dir. Jack Hill (1973),
This fast-moving thriller was Pam Grier’s first starring role and launched her career as the queen of 1970s blaxploitation flicks. Statuesque Grier is a vengeance-minded lady who sets out to get the men responsible for her little sister’s addiction. She blasts her victims (pushers, cops, pimps, you name it), lured into sex, with a shotgun that never misses. The movie hardly ever misses—it’s well-made trash.
