Foxy Brown vs. The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum



A couple of movies about vengeful women, and a couple of my personal favorites. There is no doubt that Foxy Brown is cooler and more action packed, but Katharina Blum has this weird vibe that I like. The two protagonists really couldn't be more different, I figure, considering that Foxy is a righteous ass-kicker from the get go and Katharina is more of a victim throughout the movie (until she gets pushed too far). But they both get into their situation over the love of a man. Pam Grier is definitely hotter than Angela Winkler hands down, though. I would have to say that The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum appeals to me more as a mood piece, while Foxy Brown has the visceral thrills. When it comes down to it, I suppose Foxy Brown is the movie I'd be most likely to watch under regular circumstances. But The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum is pretty close.
