Product Description

Another strange journey into the bizarre world of Russ Meyer. Three buxom (naturally) go-go girls turn on their predominantly male audience and begin breaking their bones and running them over when the violence of our times just gets too much for them.

Russ Meyer has to be one of the most under-rated directors of all-time. His films are comicbook and cartoonish in style, everything is exaggerated. Men are generally portrayed as weak, impotent losers to which his powerful, oversexed women throw scorn and ridicule. This film is no exception. And along with FW Murnau's Expressionist masterpiece "Faust", "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" also features one of my favourite opening sequences to any film. Go baby, go!

This film is as good if not better than Pulp Fiction. It may be from the 60s, but it's one of those films where you get drawn into its world from the very first scene, and you're transported into another dimension that doesn't seem to belong to any time-frame. There are no rules or structural cliches that 99.9% of other films insist on conforming to, yet the narrative and overall plot-line is strong throughout. It never gets boring. The central theme of female empowerment and independence doesn't grate like it does with so many other films which focus on that issue. It's just a surreal, high-octane work of genius from start to finish.

Definitely in my top 10 films of all time. Although I have to say I've seen five or six subsequent films by Russ Meyer and they were all rubbish.

Format: DVD
The girls in this film don't pull any punches: they are a bit unhinged and under the leadership of Varla, are prepared to use a cocktail of sex and violence to bring their evil plans to fruition. Not that they have any plans to start with, beyond driving their racing cars in the desert with manic glee. The film is pitched at so delirious a level right from the outset - dancing the watusi in front of lust-crazed punters leads within seconds to an absurd catfight with much rolling in the dust. And this is before the campy dialogue has got going. Ridiculous lines like 'Come on in, the water's lovely' bawled out far too loud, and for no reason, make the whole thing an over-the-top adrenaline-rush of a film! It also seems to say something about morality and the dubiousness of the desire to come out on top; the goody-goody couple at the beginning aren't quite in the moral right, although they are more so than than Varla and her cohorts, by a long way. And also about sex - the good man is almost led to his perdition by lust, and it blinds him to the truth, in which sense the overriding arc of meaning seems to be quite puritanical. And yet the surface is anything but, with the girls' buxom physiques 'poured' into ludicrously figure-hugging catsuits, hotpants and the like. And of course the desire is firing off in all directions, with lesbian tensions threatening to overheat the delicate balance at every turn, and 'inappropriate' elderly lust combining with disability in a way that certainly isn't in good taste. Likewise the violence is shocking, partly because it is perpetrated by women and involves them fighting men, and partly for the razor-sharp editing, which means such sequences have never had more visceral impact. I can't unscramble all these aspects but I do feel it is a great film and totally unique. The commentary with Tura Satana surprised me because she sounds so balanced and humorous in her attitude - surprised because she really is fantastically convincing in the role.

Format: DVD
Three sensation seeking go-go dancers: the tough homicidal big bad mama Varla (the marvelous Tura Satana), the good time gal Billie (Lori Mitchell) and the moody Rosie (Haji) kidnap a teenager (Sue Bernard) after killing her boyfriend (Ray Barlow). But when they end up at an isolated ranch owned by an old crippled lech (Stuart Lancaster), who lives with his muscle bound but mentally backward son (Dennis Busch) and a quiet book reading son (Paul Trinka), they may have met their match! While not quite the wonky masterpiece of his BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, this Russ Meyer exploitation flick comes pretty close. Wickedly funny, Meyer's cartoonish undertaking is like the darker side of Frank Tashlin's Jayne Mansfield movies. Mammaries are either coming at you or female posteriors are walking away. Curiously given Meyer's reputation, there's no actual sex or nudity but profuse drams of violence. Like DeMille who seemed to enjoy showing us the pleasurable excesses of the wicked before giving them their just desserts, Meyer seems a Puritan at heart as he takes glee in these three tough babes causing havoc before the wrath of God comes down on them. But there's no doubt Meyer and his cameraman Walter Schenk have an eye for composition, the B&W images approach lyricism.

The Arrow DVD via Great Britain is region 0 so it should play in all players. The transfer is a nice, crisp B&W picture. Extras include retrospective interviews with the four female leads.

Sales must be up on this one, because it has doubled in price since i gullably got tempted to purcahse it (based on 5 star reviews; i tend to zero in on 3 star reviews now); its a fine monochrome print and as a movie, has its moments; i took a chance on it because i had seen "Mudhoney" in an art house cinema many years ago, and liked its quirky off beat quality (another good monochrome). i wanted to like "faster...." but, the acting is painful throughout, with some respite from, in my opinion the only acter in the movie, Stuart Lancaster. Varlas fake laughter early on, is memorably bad; and i still cant decide whether it was Tura Satana doing a good job of acting the part of someone forcing laughter, or just atrociously badly acted laughter; either way it is painful. i will keep this movie and will watch it from time to time, and i have to say the extras (especially the interviews with the three pussycats in more recent years) were somewhat redeeming, including the astounding fact that the film director John Waters is on record for stating that this is the best movie ever made. this is a cult movie and like most cult movies, it has appeal for a minority and is likely to dissapoint the majority. i will end this by issuing a warning to anyone tempted (on the strength of seeing this movie, or like me, the movie "Mudhoney") to take a chance on Russ Meyers more recent offerings (1970s onwards); DO NOT, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, PART WITH ANY MONEY WITHOUT FIRST WATCHING (BY WHATEVER MEANS POSSIBLE) THAT WHICH YOUR ARE ABOUT TO PURCHASE; i attended a second more recent movie in the same art house cinema, on the strength of "Mudhoney" and sat through about half of what could best be described as a movie about sex in small town America, passed off with awful cornball humour; IT WAS THE MOST EXCRUCIATINGLY EMBARRASSING MOVIE EXPERIENCE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE and it seemed like an eternity before a suitable opportunity afforded me the chance to be the first to admit defeat, stand up and walk out.
