5.0 out of 5 stars Makes the mafia look like brownies 2 May 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars classic 19 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dazzling piece of exploitation cinema! 12 Aug 2012
By The CinemaScope Cat TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars camp, violent and brilliant! 28 Feb 2012
By schumann_bg TOP 100 REVIEWER
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.

You will either love it or hate it, there is no middle ground. Russ Meyer's masterpiece, a unique style of action, women, and cleavage! The essence of 1960s fun is captured here on film, enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo, Arrow Films! ...More! More! 5 Feb 2006
Format:DVD
That larger-than-life classic, "Faster Pussycat...", finally gets the grand DVD treatment it deserves. Pristine picture quality, and such bonuses as a brand new documentary that reunites the Pussycats, PLUS Russ Meyer's original audio commentary (resurrected from a laserdisc version of the film, circa 1997) this is THE PERFECT TREAT for Russ Meyer fans, thanks to the dedicated and talented folks at Arrow Films. I want to buy their entire Russ Meyer collection now, and so will you!
