Ed Fucking H (de) wrote: Pretty decent erotic drama dealing with S&M. S&M in the movies can really be hit or miss. Too much emphasis on the acts, and not enough time being spent on character development, philosophy and story, can be the difference between a MOVIE and a fetish film. While I personally have little interest in S&M for arousing purposes I do think that the subject provides strong imagery and can be used to great effect in many different ways. To shock the audience (as it is frequently used in the horror genre), as allegory (Salo or A Serbian Film), or as character study (The Piano Teacher or Secretary.) It also can say a lot about the give and take nature of all relationships whether sexual or otherwise, albeit in an extreme way. This film works due to it's story, characters and good albeit low budget direction. It also feels like the filmmakers were unsure who their audience might be. It does definently deliver to films fans such as myself, who have specific interests in this genre, but they did also seem to realize that most people who end up watching this film are going to be fetishists, and so they draw out the "sex" scenes longer than I really needed. While this definently affected my enjoyment of the film, I think all in all this is good for what it is, and I would recommend it to those who enjoy this sort of thing. While far from perfect, I did find myself being drawn in by the story and the characters, even if I think some sections dragged on a little too much. Not as good as some of the other films mentioned in this review but definently worth a watch.

Caine is cool as ice as the reluctant protagonist casting a jaundiced eye on all the shenanigans going on around him. Francoise Dorleac is a lovely mystery woman although her character seems to vanish at several key points in the film when it feels like she would be there. This might be because she was killed in a traffic accident while the picture was still filming necessitating a rethinking to still make her completed work usable. She's quite magnetic, her resemblance to her sister Catherine Deneuve is striking, and her death cut short a career that was already very successful in France and was starting to expand worldwide. Ed Begley also stands out, having a great time as a crazy old coot. Subtle he ain't but memorable for sure.
Tamsin P (it) wrote: It's kind of affectionate and has some funny moments, and it certainly has this infectious, dedicated love for all things Star Wars, but otherwise it's just a crude, horny mess.I enjoyed the Seth Rogen cameos, though.SIDE NOTE: Hiccup/Anna shippers might be amused by the romance subplot.

Donald W (ru) wrote: This was Russ Meyer's only big budget movie. Roger Ebert wrote the script. He's a better movie critic. It's just a long soap opera with flashes of nudity. Although it's about an all girl rock band, the music is terrible. Russ Meyer is an old World War II vet trying to be hip in the late 1960's and just doesn't quite get it. One of the themes of this movie is the generation gap from that era. He had a good eye for girls with big boobs but had no ear for rock music. Just a few years before this movie was made, the Monkees TV show was about a fake band but managed to have real hits. This movie had a no-hit rock band doing the music. The NC-17 rating is because of the weird climax to the movie with a trans-gendered dude cutting heads off and stabbing and shooting people for no reason. The story starts out with an all girl band playing at a high school prom. They decide to go to California to claim an inheritance for the lead singer. They must have been in Oklahoma because they have a map sequence of them traveling that starts in the Texas Panhandle on I-40. They get to L.A. and become instant stars. Nothing in the story makes any sense. The acting is bad. The dialogue is flat or makes no sense. The only thing the movie has going for it is the good looking women. I've got the Laserdisc version of this movie. If you want to see a good Russ Meyer film, watch Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill. It's low budget but fun.
