Exploitation maven Russ Meyer created a cult classic with this turbo-charged action film. Three curvaceous go-go dancers in a cool sports car go on a desert crime spree, led by Varla (the amazing Tura Satana), a busty, nasty woman dressed entirely in black. Varla's lesbian moll, Rosie (Haji) -- who has an extremely overwrought accent -- and reluctant bimbo Billie (Lori Williams) are along for the ride. When they meet a naïve young couple, Tommy and Linda (Ray Barlow and Sue Bernard), Varla

Some good performances emerge from a one-note script via very good Russ Meyer direction and his outstanding editing.
A cheap and efficient comic horror movie, it's funniest when its dialogue and characters' behaviour are at their most non sequitur.
I guess plunging necklines and tight shorts aren't what they used to be... Not that such a realization will hamper anyone's enjoyment of this, or any other, Meyer endeavor.
What is it about Meyer that spurs critics to this hyperbole? I think it is an intensely personal reaction to the visceral power of Meyer's unusual images.
Sadly, Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! sounds far better on paper than it actually plays.
Russ Meyer's fetishistic vision of powerful bisexual amazons of mixed nationalities engaged in criminal super action exists in a cartoonish world of black and white humor where anything is possible
Gleefully sordid, violent, good-humored exploitation from Russ Meyer, the thinking person's skin-flick director.
Classic social satire and slapstick humor!
This one aimed for the unsophisticated drive-in market with its rich mixture of sex and violence, but served up no nudity or swearing.
Joel Schumacher, camp? Meh - this is camp, and this is undeniably a wild good time.
This is the ultimate expression of the American cinema's greatest fetishes: big breasts, fast cars, tight jeans, and sudden death. This is, in its own way, one of the great films of the 60's.
The sex is intended to arouse, the violence to excite, and the combination enables Faster Pussycat's status as an absolute masterpiece of subversion.
Has a cult following that I am hard-pressed to grasp.
An awful movie but a tremendous spectacle and a pinnacle of camp exuberance, NOT to be missed.
I've always felt that Faster, Pussycat! suffered from an absence of Meyer's usual creative flourishes.
The shoestring production values are so weak, the story is so lame and the acting is so bad that there's no mistaking this Pussycat for anything but what it is - a turkey.
