Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

Posted by martinteller on May 26, 2008

Being a person over the age of 30, I have no particular interest in exploitation films.  That ironic stance of loving something because it’s “so bad it’s good” is in my past.  Funny thing about this movie, though… it’s not “so bad”.  At least, it’s better than I thought it would be.  This is my first Russ Meyer film, and I didn’t expect him to be such a competent (even skilled) director and editor.  It’s clearly the work of someone who knows how to make movies.  The weakest part is the acting.  Or possibly the writing… even a gifted actor would have a hard time delivering lines so overloaded with slang, puns, metaphors and innuendo.  I guess that’s part of the fun, though, along with the big breasts and bad attitude.  I didn’t enjoy this as much as some mid-20’s hipster would (the kind of guy who would annoy all his friends by quoting it incessantly for the following 3 weeks), but I was pleasantly surprised.  Rating: 7
