Review: ‘Up!’

Director Russ Meyer's trademark is the casting of the most incredibly endowed actresses who bounce and jiggle through a primitive world, driving men to violence and murder for their favors.

Director Russ Meyer’s trademark is the casting of the most incredibly endowed actresses who bounce and jiggle through a primitive world, driving men to violence and murder for their favors.

The men in Meyer pix are rarely a match for the women, though Meyer has equipped his actors with ‘marital aids’ (to be polite) so they can compete with the ladies in long shots.

The violence, like much of the sex, is too outrageous to be believable. At one point, an axe is buried in a man’s back, but he pulls it out and buries it in turn in his attacker’s chest who then pulls it out and finishes the job with a buzzsaw to the groin. Fun stuff.

Up!
