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

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.

Russ Meyer's ultra-lurid 1970 magnum opus, infamously penned by a young Roger Ebert, remains a towering achievement. What it achieves, however, is difficult to define.

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

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

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

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

Besides being an addictively entertaining guilty pleasure from beginning to end, it's that rare movie that transcends its opportunistic origins to become a true singularity; a movie like no other.

in its own way, a classic

November 19, 2002
A psychedelic wow that serves up the free love, plunging necklines, androgynous boys, and lusty lezzies of the era with a narcotized abandon.
September 10, 2002
It's a B-movie at its best; exploitation with brains.

Caught in the right frame of mind, it offers plenty of groovy sights ... [but] the violent climax is highly problematic.

Like Valley of the Dolls, Beyond is a howler of a movie, with the crucial difference being that Meyer and Ebert intended it that way.
