Ratings & Reviews

  1. smndvdcl's rating of the film Myra Breckinridge

    The reputation of 'Myra Breckinridge' has more to do with Gore Vidal and William Buckley than the film itself. Vidal's source novel attempts to invert social conservatism and patriarchal oppression through shock tactics - a woman raping a man with a strap-on. This kitsch adaptation was meant to be more of an ideological catalyst for the gender and censorship debate than a masterpiece in its own right. It worked.

  2. Jack Hoehn's rating of the film Myra Breckinridge

    Raquel Welch's performance is brilliant tbh

  3. Pymo's rating of the film Myra Breckinridge

  4. Rachie Wayt's rating of the film Myra Breckinridge

    Mae West's version of Hard to Handle was amazing, considering she is well into her 70's in this movie. "Never mind about the six feet. Let's talk about the seven inches."

  5. JamesPC's rating of the film Myra Breckinridge

    Absolutely outrageous fun.

  6. MarcH's rating of the film Myra Breckinridge

    An automobile accident, but you have to admire its audacity (and Welch taking a role that required her to strap one on and rape a man's ass while yelling "yippee!")

  7. Subterranean Cinema's rating of the film Myra Breckinridge

    It think that it's better (and certainly funnier) than it's infamous Golden Turkey reputation would make you think,.There was an old HBO comedy series called "Dream On" that used exactly the same style of cutting to old vintage film clips in a double entendre way as the characters spoke. Im a Raquel Welch fan too, she was also undeserving of a Golden Turkey rep and was actually a pretty good actress most times.

  8. Kid Sisyphus's rating of the film Myra Breckinridge

    Raquel Welch circa 1970 can don an American flag swimsuit and ass rape me anytime.

  9. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Myra Breckinridge

    Camp up, satire down. A patchy adaptation of Vidal's more pointed novel. Not entirely toothless and with some decently arch moments - notably the associative intercutting from old Hollywood films - but lacking incision with either too literal or too coy renderings of key scenes from the book. Welch surprisingly captures the right mood with a light comic touch, but elsewhere the acting chaffs rather than coalesces.
