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.
