Following his reading of Impossibly Funky: A Cashiers Du Cinemart Collection at the Brookline Booksmith Friday evening, Mike White returns to discuss an obscure gem of '70s exploitation
filmmaking, Greydon Clark's Black Shampoo
(1976), the story of a sexy African-American hair-salon owner who goes
ballistic with a chainsaw when his receptionist is menaced by the mob. In
short, a brilliant mash-up of Shaft, Hal Ashby's Shampoo,
and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
