This is a beautiful and quirky feminist fable that arouses the mind as well as the loins. Nobody made films quite like Russ Meyer and this is a true gem that serves up monumental beauty from its bountiful women, the scenic and existential landscapes, and the innovative editing and camerawork. Meyer truly was the rural Fellini.
But for Russ's cameo which brings a fitting conclusion to his madcap career, this film, which airs out all of his pet obsessions, is hopelessly dull and repetitive and shows nothing of his homegrown artistry. Faster Pussycat remains his best work, but all the same I'm glad he got a chance to make the movie he'd been dreaming about since Bill Teas left for work.
