      Audience Member for some reason theres two Motor Psycho films on rotten tomatoes. They are the same movie so I rated both Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Early Meyer venture leaping from the realm of cheesecake films to explotation. Works as a springboard of several of his finer works to come, most notably "Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill!" which immediately followed this release. First film featuring Haji. Keep an eye out for Russ Meyer as a local sheriff, and stuntman/sound editor Richard Brummer as an ambulance driver. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Plays sort of like a male version of 'Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!' It's entertaining enough and at 1hr 13mins doesn't outstay its welcome. Bizarre interlude with a snake though... and some odd stabs at humour. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member More serious than your normal Russ Meyer film Motor Psycho feels like A Clockwork Orange meets Easy Rider. When a group of three thugs move into a small desert town they begin to rape and murder anyone that they cross. Once they rape Alex Rocco's girlfriend he teams up with another victim and together they get their revenge. Black and white and focused more on story than brainless T and A. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member I can't believe how underrated this is amongst Meyer's work. First of all, it features my favorite RM Actress of all of them, Haji, in a starring role. And she is brilliant as the tough, street-smart, recently widowed, shot in the head but still breathing, sexy yet elegant, Cajun queen, Ruby Bonner. Second, it's Alex Rocco's first film and he makes for a great protagonist, maintaining a certain edge and personality to him, while perfectly fitting in amongst the typical square jawed male population of the Meyer world. Third, the soundtrack is killer. Easily one of Meyer's best in more ways than one. Not only are the tunes kickass, but when one of them does sort of start to wear out a bit, Meyer freely acknowledges and makes fun of this by literally blowing the song away. Fourth, Meyer's cameo in this is definitely the best and longest of any of his films. He plays a character who one must assume is the polar opposite of Meyer himself; an asshole, womanizing, shit-brain sherif. Fifth, all the classic Meyer everything. Snake bites. Double entendres. Speed. Sex. Violence. Dynamite. Brilliantly out of place war references. Car chases. Absurdly large breasted women. Groovy dancing. Old, horny men. The great outdoors. Oddball gas station attendants, etc... Sixth, the photography in this one is gorgeous. Again, easily some of Meyer's best work in that area as well. Very cool shoots. Beautiful black and white. Desert landscapes. It's amazing. Perhaps this film is overshadowed by Faster Pussycat, but it hardly deserves to be. If anything it's a contender for the top of any Meyer fan's list. Yeah, maybe it doesn't have all of the explicit sexuality of his later work, but sometimes I think he's at his best when he doesn't have constant nudity to fall back on. There's some fantastic dialogue in here that is perfectly delicious. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Alex Rocco is out for revenge on the 3 bikers that sexually assaulted his wife; Haji's old man was offed by the same gang & is along for the ride. Part of Meyer's b/w trilogy isn't as sharp as Faster Pussycat but still a fun violent ride; love that snake bite scene Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
