Black Mama, White Mama

Philippines/US - 1972
Direstor - Eddie Romero
Orion Home Video, 1996, VHS
Run Time - 1 hour, 26 minutes

This is a personal favorite of mine because it is one of the first Corman/Philippine exploitation movies I saw. It's a favorite of many people apparently, across many genres. Oftentimes it is classified among the Blaxploitation and Women In Prison genres. I can see elements of both, (more of the latter) but I would call it more of a Caper movie. It doesn't really matter though because it is awesome, and written by Jonathan Demme!

I read that this was supposed to be a remake of "the Defiant Ones", haven't seen it yet though. Either way it looks awesome!
