Reviews

“Forerunner of the feminist exploitation genre. With sharp editing and a startlingly tactile sense of texture, her most obvious counterpart is the more widely lauded Russ Meyer.”
– L.A. Times

“THE FEMALE ED WOOD! Nonsensical editing choices, including cutaways to paintings and ashtrays, overdubbed dialogue, gratuitous violence and nudity, and the exploitation of innocent women aplenty, a Doris Wishman film is titillating, odd, and endearing at the same time. WISHMAN’S FILMS EXIST ON THEIR OWN TERMS!”
– Alison Nastasi, Flavorwire
