It’s summer at the Senate and we’re once again getting Hot, Sweaty & Weird with a series of flicks to satisfy your burning desire for schlock and subculture, camp and cult! 


First up is Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, the grandmama of “sexploitation” films from writer/director/producer and consummate boundary pusher, Russ Meyer—hailed as the “best movie ever made” by director John Waters (Hairspray, Pink Flamingos).

This low budget masterpiece follows the violent exploits of three go-go dancers/sports car enthusiasts led by the terrifying and shockingly busty speed demon, Varla (Tura Santana).  


Originally dismissed by the film critics, this boldly bad and brazenly bawdy film has since been reevaluated as a sneaky satire with cheeky humor and quotable dialogue; its b-movie aesthetics and production values elevated by its subversive and still relevant takes on sexuality and gender. 


Don’t miss it!
