"Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" is hilarious. Roger Ebert wrote the script, by the way.

I'll second the Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. Great fun.

I'd like to find a copy of the wacka-jawaka soundtrack on vinyl too....if it's even out there....

Beyond the Valley... is better than that, IMO. Though I saw Faster Pussycat... and it was truly shitty.

Yeah, some of his films are. But even people that feel that all of his movies are "boring titty flicks" like Mudhoney after I show it to them. It has a lurid "Tobacco Road" feel and some terrific over the top acting. Even chicks like it.

All of you should see it.

Seems appropriate to dig this up, considering the exploitation C/NC.

A funny funny film maker. With a large helping of tits.

Whatever one can say about Russ Meyer's films, they sure aren't boring. The man was obsessed with giving his films a solid rhythm, and the best ones are relentlessly paced. The man also had a quite amazing visual style, and a brilliantly off-kilter sense of humor. Check out Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls, Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, Cherry, Harry and Raquel or Vixen and you'll see a genius at work. Not Crap.

I spent last weekend getting acquainted with a good deal of his catalog aside from the so-NOT-CRAP-it's-not-even-up-for-debate Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!. From what I've seen, his movies are pretty hit or miss.
Vixen: CRAP. I didn't dig the incest or rape scenes, or the racism that seemed relentlessly constant. And Vixen's Vulcan-Brows and Snaggleteeth were horrid.
Beneath the Valley of the Dolls: CRAP. Fuck that movie square in the face. (Though, on a side note of little relevance, it was kind of cool to see Cynthia Myers in this movie, I have her Playboy jigsaw puzzle.)
Supervixens!: NOT CRAP. That movie will fuck your whole brain up. There's light gore, touches of surrealism, a pair of eighteen inch prosthetic cocks that show up, and a distinct lack of "Yakkety Sax" where "Yakkety Sax" would normally be completely necessary, tastefully absconded with in favor of military marching band renditions of old Christian hymns. Oh, and there's some naked women, too.
Motor Psycho: NOT CRAP. Multiple themes that would later pop up in Supervixens! are prototyped here, and it features Russ Meyer regular Haji speaking more lines than I've ever heard her deliver. Part of Russ Meyer's self-described "Gothic" period, when he switched from color to black and white.
Tried watching Wild Girls of the Naked West last night, but the only audio track was in German, nor can I find a torrent for Mudhoney unless I want to download the band and not the movie. Any suggestions?

watched it again, gotta say I liked it. It was fairly dark in its own silly way. Still think Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is aces, have gotten the DVD and seen it many times since.

also, I was shocked to find out the topic for the band Faster Pussycat has more posts than this one.
