(nl) wrote: A competent low-budget psychological comedy drama let down by a cop-out ending.
(de) wrote: Is Diary of a Wimpy Kid the most resonating coming-of-age movie out there? No. Is it going to subvert the genre for years to come? No. What it is, however, is harmless family entertainment. That's all it's trying to be, and it's not all that bad. It has its fair share of clichs and predictable plot points, and the plot is little more than a series of vignettes with a very basic storyline holding them together, the film has a nice sense of heart that's almost too charming to hate. Much of that charm comes from the chemistry between the two leads, played by Zachary Gordon and Robert Capron. Their relationship has the standard ups-and-downs of your typical film of this type, but they completely sell their characters and make for surprisingly likeable leads. It's not Oscar winning acting, obviously, but it gets the job done. Don't expect too much from this one, and you might just get some mild enjoyment out of it.

Kill! Kill! is still one of his most exploitive films. Depending on how viewers interpret it, they can see it either as a commentary or just exploitive fun. Either way, it is a good film which has its faults but overall succeeds.Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is a film created on a shoestring budget of $45,000, and you can see that evident in the fact that it has to be very repetitive and thin in its narrative. While this is common for exploitation films, the lack of blood, gore or nudity may find that it doesn't scale the successful heights of many other films of the genre. And as a Russ Meyer film, the man who created the Vixen trilogy of films which were packed to the brim with large breasted women exposing themselves, it may be a disappointment for many. But you really just have to suck it up and get over it because there are many elements to Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! which make it a great piece of exploitation cinema.Back in the 1960's, women were rarely in exploitation films unless it was to be naked or murdered by some criminal male character. In Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, Russ Meyer defies the stereotype and gives the film women who are so powerful that it consumes them and is the driving force for them to go on a crime spree. It isn't mysoginistic nor does it portray all women as criminals, it simply has them in the position that male characters tend to be in and showing that they can be just as violent and reckless as their male counterparty. I mean, although the leading trio of females in Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! are sexy, I rarely was able to look at them for their physical beauty as they were actually very intimidating. It was as if looking at them for too long would result in my own castration, so frankly the entire experience was shaky for me. But still, the fact is that I enjoyed the film and the fact that even in a year like 1965 Russ Meyer was not afraid to go all out and expose violent cinema on a low budget. It is not hard to see why John Waters calls this his favourite film.Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is a nostalgic film and takes viewers back to a time before the breakthrough Grindhouse genre in the 1970's, back to when innovative on-screen violence was shocking and controversial. It is clear that the film was not successful and that it was destined to be a cult classic, so it is more appreciated today than it was in its original release. But seriously, any fan of exploitation cinema should see Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! because it takes viewers back to when the genre was just starting to take off and be all about fun, as well as the fact that it has Russ Meyers' work as director glamourising the actions of violent women simply because he loved women. It glamourises it a little bit because it has viewers supporting the characters, yet at the same time it uses strong dramatisation to emphasise the dramatic and violent nature of their actions and how it should not be condoned. People can look at Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! as a film about violence or women, but actually it is just about violent women and Russ Meyer showing off what he can do on a low budget. The thin nature of the story may bore some, but the fact that it is full of cool stunts, some good moments of violence and a powerful trio of leading actresses was more than enough to please me. The soundtrack was also a fairly atmospheric touch to Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!.The thing that I enjoyed most about Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! was the performance of lead actress Turu Satana. The woman herself has a lot of experience with violence in real life, and she transfers that over to her role in Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! as Varla, the matriarch to three women on a crime spree. She has the necessary sex appeal that Russ Meyer demands from his actresses, having large breasts, but she also has a tense sense of power within her. I was really impressed at her performance because although clearly it is not a serious role, the female archetype that she creates is impressive. Varla is an attractive but seriously intimidating woman, the kind you would not want to mess with in a million years. And by projecting that kind of intimidation towards both the audience and the other characters she creates a powerful leading archetype. Turu Satana isn't exploited by Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, it actually seems like she has power over her character and the script which makes her a great figure. And the antagonistic nature of her is seriously threatening. So all in all, Turu Satana is the perfect casting decision for the lead in Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!Haji and Lori Williams make a tense supporting duo as well to reinforce the film's stance on powerful women, and they project a firm duo of supporting characters as well as delivering the camp dialogue of the film with dead-on accuracy. Susan Bernard also gives a decent effort in Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!.So while Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is limited by its low budget and lacks the amount of blood and gore more commonly associated with exploitation films which would develop in the 1970's, it is one of Russ Meyer's most powerful films with a social statement about challenging gender roles, a lot of entertaining violence and a bravado leading performance from Turu Satana.
