Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!


There is something different about Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! Probably it is one of the few exploitation films which doesn't contain nudity. Maximum part of the movie was shot in Mojave desert and it features violence, sexuality and campy dialogues in a good amount.

Co-written with Jack Moran and directed by Russ Meyer, this movie revolves around three dancers who encounters a young couple in a desert. The leader of the three, Varla (played by Tura Satana) kills the boyfriend and kidnaps the girlfriend. Later, they stop at a gas station and encounters an old man who is confined to a wheelchair. The gas station attendant tells the about the cache of money which the old man is hiding in his ranch.

The direction by Russ Meyer is superior with stunning visual images and top notch editing. Though the same can't be said about the script but somehow the gap is filled with dialogues and shot-sequences. Recommended.
