Beyond the Valley of the Dolls Reviews

Cinema Crazed

A funky, wonky, and entertaining jolt into the decade that bred free loving, hipster rockers, and hippies...

The very definition of self-conscious camp, certainly not Art but much too intelligent for Trash.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

An outrageously entertaining cult classic, and probably one of the most bizarre movies ever produced by a major Hollywood studio.

This trashy, gaudy, sound-stage vulgarity about low life among the high life is as funny as a burning orphanage.

Russ Meyer does mainstream, kind of.

One of the strangest and wildest cult flicks to be ever financed by a major studio (Fox), this sequel has not aged well but it serves as a time capsule to its era.

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is one of the most incomprehensible films I have ever seen.

With his first movie for a major studio, Meyer simply did what he'd been doing for years, only bigger and better.

As his overactive jump cuts prove, Meyer directs films as though he's perpetually on the cusp of a fantastic orgasm.

Any movie that Jacqueline Susann thinks would damage her reputation as a writer cannot be all bad. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls isn't -- which is not to say it is any good.

A psychedelic wow that serves up the free love, plunging necklines, androgynous boys, and lusty lezzies of the era with a narcotized abandon.

It's a B-movie at its best; exploitation with brains.

I can't call it a bad film, since all its eccentricities (including the groovy dialogue) were obviously lovingly placed there.
