Women can make fine exploitation pictures too as is evidenced in this '73 film from Stephanie Rothman. Fun B film that envisions an island of murderers fighting amongst themselves for survival and turning the women into their private whores (and predating Escape from New York by 8 years to boot). Film holds up pretty well and not just of interest for a pre-Magnum Tom Selleck.
Encapsulates the best of schlock subprime B-cinema: if you can see through the T&A, it tackles the evils of culture more than a film intended for the mainstream. This gem plays like a feminist hybrid reading of Battle Royale & Con Air with a madcap ending, a young Tom Selleck and some nasty things to say about our justice and media systems. And T&A. That it has a female writer-director only adds to its idiosyncrasy.
kind of like season two of LOST but with nude chicks. I enjoyed it. It kind of was a head scratcher in the beginning bc I couldnt tell if it was going to be full on camp or what. A solid 70s drive in flick. Thanks MUBI.
It's like Punishment Park meets Lord of The Flies (in this case the conch is the cooch) meets a daytime soap opera meets a B movie suspense film. The women are way too happy given their predicament, which is actually the most exploitative aspect - maybe that's the point. Overall the sleaze and the politics are kept to a minimum and the focus is more on the low budget 70's action elements.
Geeeez... Ten years ago it would be my guilty pleasure now it required a quite a lot of twisted sense of humour to even finish it. The idea wasn't so bad (yeah, yeah I know that is the grandaddy of the whole subgenre) but the whole screenplay is just pointless, the acting is... ugh. Music is sometimes hillarious. It's fun for the z-class (b isn't enough) films amatours. (Un) fortunately I'm too old for that.
