CONSERVATIVE PUSSYCAT?: Public Interest argues (semi-seriously) that the works of Russ “Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!” Meyer should be added to the growing Conservative Movie Canon. He notes that vice is punished and virtue rewarded in most of the director’s many babelicious films. For the record, it’s been several years since I took in a Meyer flick, but I’d like to state that a) Plot isn’t everything, and b) Movies that intend to evoke any of the Seven Deadly are, at least, difficult to sell as “conservative.” But hey, go read his analysis, it’s fun.
