#444. Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965)
Why It's In The Book: "What can you say about Russ Meyer? His movies are, to paraphrase a well-known saying about life itself, nasty, brutish, and short. Arguments have been made in favor of his occasional artistry and, sometimes, we are asked to reconsider the troublesome sexual politics of his films. And, although both arguments (and many of the films themselves) should be approached with caution, Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! remains a favorite–and not just for John Waters, who likes to claim that it’s the best movie ever made…
The film enjoys its place at the top of many cult lists in part because of its several inherent delights–creative and flashy editing, smart black-and-white cinematography, a jazzy score, and plenty of innuendo–and in part because it is a fascinating barometer of the shifts during the 1960s, especially with respect to cinema itself." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Michaël Parent - 8/10
"Camp, cult, sexy, violent, influential, and indescribable are some of the best adjectives that comes when watching director Russ Meyer’s film. "
nicolas krizan - 7/10
"has a weird hypnotic quality that transcends its many flaws."
Squish - 7/10
"Varla is one tall glass of water. Pleasantly plump in all the right places, this severely-eyebrowed Japanese-Italian wears all black. And, just as you would expect any black-hatted cowboy to be a bad guy, so is she, and is she ever."
Adolytsi - 6/10
"Really, everything that this film does is done with about as much professionalism as a tin can, from the grubby black-and-white cinematography, to the excessive and practically explicit soundtrack, to the blocky script so full of catchwords it is downright laughable. But, all in all, that’s pretty much the point; to laugh and chuckle at the bombastic qualities and campiness of the film."
Kim Wilson - 6/10
"Overall, I definitely would not rank this as one of the films I had to see before my death. Everything about it is bad—yet, somehow still watchable."
Lindsey - 6/10
"Yeah, I really don't understand the plot, but I don't think the plot was the point of the movie. The point is to see girls with really tight clothes in the desert."
Movie Guy Steve - 6/10
"Varla is barely contained by her leather top. She’s a shrug and a hiccup away from exposing 18 pounds of mammary. The bulk of the audience, of course, is hoping against hope for that shrug and hiccup. If the film were to be made today…well, she’d just be constantly topless, and you’d be able to watch it every night between 11:30 and 1:00 am on Cinemax."
