YMMV / Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

  • Les Yay: Rosie and Varla
  • Vindicated by Cable: Originally thought as simple sleaze and misogynistic, now embraced as female empowerment and gender politics.
    Roger Ebert: The feminist and lesbian film critic B. Ruby Rich, writing at length on "Pussycat" in a recent Village Voice, said she dismissed "Pussycat" 20 years ago as just a skin flick. Seeing it again during its revival at New York's Film Forum, she had a different reaction, viewing it now as female fantasy, its images of "empowerment" fascinating to her. Meyer, from the beginning of his career and almost without exception, has filmed only situations in which women wreak their will upon men.
