Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

Monday, July 26, 2010

“Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to violence!” So begins Russ Meyer’s gorgeous, hilariously campy B-movie about three big breasted strippers with short tempers who wind up on a crime spree filled with murder, kidnapping, and s-e-x. Camp for sure, but Meyer goes deeper, with a depiction of a disintegrating family straight out of a William Inge melodrama. A huge cult hit in 1965, Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!’s success inspired legendary gay porn director Joe Gage to start thinking of making his own sex filled B-movies, including Kansas City Trucking Company, a landmark in gay porn. Don’t miss this rare film screening of Meyer’s most influential film, a cornerstone of both camp and punk culture, and certain to turn everyone on, the boys and the girls!
