Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! 1965,  R)
Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
A luminous entry into a grimy genre. It never goes too far, but dwells around an androgynous zone with so many phallic metaphors it makes your head spin. Russ Meyer seems unfairly slapped with a moniker of father of the porno film, especially considering this movie is less about sex and much more about gender roles.

It's dead on seriousness, especially for what might have been campy subject matter, makes it far bolder and watchable than one would believe at first. A classic cult-film.

The Immoral Mr Teas 1959,  Unrated)
The Immoral Mr Teas
Slow, plodding, yet one of the first films containing unabashed nudity, and Russ Meyer's first commercially successful film.

Not something to sit through and watch from end to end, although it does have some light-hearted ribald humor if you stick with it long enough.

Otherwise, its a neat insight into the first, and by modern standards utterly innocent, steps toward nudity in film.

Before this film, nudity was masqueraded as "educational films" about nudist camps, whereas "The Immoral Mr. Teas", while constantly placing in educational facts about sunlight and water density, does so with a tongue so firmly in its cheek, its hard not to laugh at it's absurdity, yet appreciate its honesty... especially in comparison to what would come later on in the 1960's.

Eve and the Handyman 1961,  Unrated)
Eve and the Handyman
A bit faster than the methodical "Mr. Teas" which preceded it, and with more plot and much less nudity. Yet still, the punchlines are lacking, and the plot, while present, is merely a single, cheesy punchline.

All the same, this is a movie which worships cheesy punchlines and sophmoric ogling, and shows director Russ Meyer moving away from indulgent nudity and towards his trademark clever innuendo and stick-and-carrot fetishism.
