WINTER OF DISCONTENT: Pam Grier mini-season
As December skis down the icy slope towards Christmas and everything is bedecked with tinsel and decorations and fairy lights, a warm and fuzzy feeling permeates humankind. It’s the season of peace on earth and goodwill to all.
On The Agitation of the Mind, we’re still snowed in by the howling storms of exploitation, cynicism, violence and the despicable excesses of man’s inhumanity to man. Because, let’s face it, it’s always men who fuck shit up. Only now, the Winter of Discontent has its very own angel.
Angel of vengeance, that is.
Over the next week or so, the undisputed queen of blaxploitation, Pam Grier, will be gracing these pages and there will be no goodwill whatsoever to the men who find themselves on her bad side. None.
