France Digs Blaxploitation!

The arrival of American sound films at first created panic among the European countries who immediately resisted the influx of US films.

Blaxploitation And New York Funkin’ City

 

New York Funkin’ City And Harlem, USA


As you know, I love Blaxploitation. What I dig most about these films is that a number of them took place in NYC. With all the jive-talking, gun-toting, leather-wearing, cocaine and heroin sniffin’ pimps, not to mention the outrageous outfits, cars and of course the women, all of these films had a funky inner-city vibe that was quite campy and extremely cheesy. I JUST LOVE IT!!!
