Editorial Reviews

Russ Meyer's "tried and true" formula is on-target again...outrageously buxom women and dumb, muscular men laying their sexually aggressive prowess on the line. Yes, it's all here in Russ Meyer's UP! * Two-timers, cops, robbers, joints, and mind-boggling, bra-busting women * SWEET LI'L ALICE ...fast, foxy, and fertile * the HEADPERSON (Candy Samples aka Mary Gavin)...awesome abundance * POCOHONTAS...cantilevered, protuberant * the CHESTY YOUNG THING...conical, unrestrained * LIMEHOUSE...pneumatic bliss - oriental style * GWENDOLYN...what a pair of jungle drums * the GREEK CHORUS (Kitten Natividad)...the biggest and the best * and the "smothering" MARGO WINCHESTER...assault with a deadly bosom * plus the usual assortment of good lookin', virile, awesomely hung, klutzy men. There's always somethin' BIG about a Russ Meyer movie!

"Up" is so much better than other soft porn movies. It has lots of large, naked breasts and bizarre, creative dialogue and plot. The acting, cinematography, editing and picture quality is all top-notch stuff. However, I'm not sure it is worth the exhorbitant price. If Russ is going to charge 30-40 dollars for his fine films, he could at least spend an hour and a half doing a commentary track.

Outrageously gratuitous and excessive in every sense of the word, Russ Meyer's Up! cleverly mixes busty babes, bloody violence, blouse-busting femme fatales, and well-endowed vixens into an erotic comedy of epic proportions. The fact that the plot is a murder-mystery that no one cares to solve, a narration by Kitten Natividad is bursting with Shakespearean poetry explaining characters no one cares to profile, and unimportant timeframe titles keep popping up as each scene starts hardly matters; anyone watching Up! is clearly in it for the over-the-top exploitation and generous doses of female nudity.

Kitten Natividad is the Greek Chorus, a naked narrator who excitedly details the wide assortment of characters who frequent the various story lines. Frequently she'll recap events with slightly different clips of footage and plenty of elaborate, riddle-filled, lyrical observations. Adolf Schwartz (Edward Schaaf), a depraved Nazi warlock and S&M fetishist, is brutally murdered in his bubblebath with the deadly fish Harry the Nimrod. There are many suspects, courteously announced by Kitten, but little motive and fewer complaints. It's a baffling puzzle with only the clue of a black-leather-gloved culprit.

Meanwhile, Margo Winchester (Raven De La Croix) is viciously attacked during a morning jog, and winds up accidentally killing her rapist. When the entire event is witnessed by local policeman Homer Johnson (Monty Bane), he coerces her into a few sexual favors to overlook the killing. Later, she gets work selling hotdogs at Sweet Li'l Alice's (Janet Wood) Cafe; in short order she's also "romantically" involved with Alice's husband Paul (Robert McLane).

The film begins quite mysteriously in a dungeon where a young man is torturing an Adolf Hitler look-alike... We then quickly cut to a stunning nude, played by Kitten Natividad, who teasingly introduces the audience to the setting...

We are in Northern California, in a small, rural community... Just outside of town, a very beautiful, buxom young lady is hitchhiking along a lonely country road... She is picked up by a young man, who happens to be the infant terrible of the local rich set... He tries to take advantage of the girl's abundant sexuality but after a short sequence involving a brutal rape, she turns the tables and ends up killing him...

Russ Meyer has never been one to linger too long on a single shot... He likes to cut, especially to ladies running naked as jaybirds around the lush countryside... In this case, however, he has added more than just a tease with Kitten Natividad, who narrates the events of the story with a husky, British accent while displaying her terrific figure... The true star of the show, however, is Raven de la Croix, whose piercing dark eyes and fully rounded, voluptuous figure combine with some firmly loyal acting for an explosive performance...

I bought this film to be able to see another film that features the late great Robert McLane (Robert Joel). The irony is that he is a gay actor playing in a very active straight role. The women are beautiful too. The interview with the star is great. She still looks great after 35 years! Thanks for making it available.

Up! tells the tale of Adolph Schwartz (Edward Shaaf), who looks a little like another well known Adolf, who has been murdered in his American castle. His death was caused by a piranha dropped into his bath....but who is the culprit? Was it The Ethopian Chef (Elaine Collins), The Headsperson (Mary Gavin aka Candy Samples), the lovely Limehouse (Su Ling), or could it have possibly been Leonard Box (Larry Dean), or maybe blow-in Margo Winchester (Raven De La Croix), whose antics with the local men seem to be taking all the attention away from his murder, or could it have been one of the many other strange characters who dwell in the town. Who knows, but with the help of the pneumatic Greek Chorus (Kitten Natividad), we will find the answer...

For all that the plot is quickly dispensed with in order to present the usual Meyer film experience. Big breasted women running often naked through the countryside. While the formula is much the same, Meyer takes it to the limit in this film. Along with the usual nudity there is a good deal of violence which makes Up! less fun than many of Meyer's earlier films. In fact there is something disturbing about the film that is rather difficult to get a handle on. Make no mistake the women are beautiful and the over the top performances by De La Croix and Natividad alone make this film inherently watchable but don't go looking for great story telling here or even a plot that makes a great deal of sense.

There are two decent extras on this disc. The first is Pussy Galore Night: Interview with Kitten Natividad (12 minutes 10 seconds) and No Fairy Tale...This!: Interview with Raven De La Croix (18 minutes and 4 seconds). Both interviews are interesting looks into Russ Meyer's world, both cinematically and personally.
