Audience Reviews for The Student Nurses


You know this was an exploitation film made by a woman because it-gasp- humanizes its four subjects and secondly has nudity in contexts in which people are typically nude. Which makes sense since Rothman later stated she never knew she was making an "exploitation" film- she just wanted to explore themes that were relevant to women at the time within the framework given to her by Corman. So what you get is a weird little film about four naive and 'sexy' young nurses and their romps with men.... oh and abortion, drugs, race, police violence, medical ethics and political revolution. In that way, despite a hefty dose of 60s/70s corniness and bad set ups, you end up with a fairly fascinating peak into what was relevant in 1970 through the lens of a seemingly frivolous film.
