Episode 81: Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

Film chosen and introduced by Devlin

In our epic career-spanning primer podcast, myself and guest Patrick Crain identified Russ Meyer’s seminal 1965 girl gang ass-kicker Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! as our collective choice for the ideal on-ramp to discovering the work of one of American cinemas most influential, controversial, and extraordinary filmmakers. So, I get to present absolute novice Gali, and Matt (who has seen a Meyer or two, many many years ago in his infamous Friday night, Channel 5 days), with the film that has perhaps survived best as the great director’s legacy.

My own feelings on the film were discussed in my accompanying essay, although in chatting to Matt and Gali, I finally had a captive audience to spill my guts to about how unique, creative, and fearsome Meyer’s films were compared to his contemporaries; how searing and iconic the imagery, how razor sharp the editing, and how the dialogue cuts even quicker.

Fans of the film may want to check out my Teemill store – I have some shirt designs based on the film, samples of which you can see below.
