COFFY

Cinematographer Ken Stachnik, whose work can be seen in the scary-as-hell thrillers ClownTown and The Toybox, joins MG to talk about one of his great cinematic inspirations:Pam Grier's vengeance-packed, genre-defining hit Coffy.  Often cited as the best film of the 1970's 'blaxploitation' movement, Coffy's crossover success changed how Hollywood thought about stardom and subject matter, and Grier's powerful performance set the mold for female action heroes for decades to come.  Frank sexuality, hard violence and blunt commentary might make it a rough ride for some viewers, but to MG, this landmark of American cinema is well worth it!
