Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Jack Hill. 1973, 90 mins. 35mm. With Pam Grier, Booker Bradshaw, Robert DoQui. When a lowlife hooks nurse “Coffy” Coffin’s little sister on drugs and lands the kid in rehab, he unleashes a whole world of hurt on the underworld and its allies. Grier, in the title role, transforms into an unstoppable force of vigilante vengeance, getting payback by night after she clocks out from her job tending to the sick, working her way up the food chain from pushers to mobsters to crooked politicians, making sure every single culprit gets theirs. Genre expert Hill gives this violent vendetta fast-and-loose energy, while shotgun-packing Grier is nothing short of iconic, a buxom and bad one-woman army.
