5.0 out of 5 stars Upcoming DVD release! Sept. 26 2004
By T. Sami
Format:VHS Tape
No use reviewing the film because everyone has already done that. Needless to say it's great and extremely well written. This is a far more polished piece of work than Meyer's other well-known films (i.e. not as "trashy").
Well, earlier today (September 27th, 2004) on "Ebert & Roper At The Movies", Roger Ebert spoke about the death of his friend Russ Meyer...
Ebert revealed that he has recorded a commentary for the film and it seems Criterion will be releasing it on DVD sometime next year (2005).
Skip the VHS and wait for the pot-o-gold with a commentary by the actual writer! This truly will be my happening and it freaks me out, man!

"Beyond The Valley of the Dolls" is a movie that was made over 30 years ago but is still enjoyable to watch today. I truly admire this film, Roger Eberts writing and the direction of Russ Meyer just make this film unique and amazing. At some points the film can be so dramatic and at other times so light hearted. The film also set some trends, like the African American woman at Z Mans party with the gold rhinestone eye shadow decoration, everyone thought Alicia Keys was doing something new when she wore rhinestones on her eyelids to the Grammy's and then all these rappers talking about Bentley's the one woman in the movie was talking about how a Rolls is better than a Bently.
This movie is awesome for so many reasons. For one its 2004 and we will never see a movie on the big screen that takes so many risks. How many movies are there where the White and African American characters have true friendships and both characters have developed story lines? It was the 60's and Ebert and Meyers weren't afraid to bring taboos like sexual orientation, well let me not be a spoiler.
The women were so beautiful, Casey, Pet and Kelly. They had bodacious bodies and big hair and perfect make-up. They lived life so carefree. The underlying storyline about the money was never really resolved but so much was going on in that flick.
It's a really great movie and it's funny because at the end, the very end they try to be moral and tie it all together and make a social statement. This is a wild and crazy trip of a movie and I catch something new everytime I watch it. As a writer and a one time aspiring film maker movies like this one make me want to go out and take risks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dig It, The Greatest Hunk Of Cheese Ever. Sept. 13 2003
Format:VHS Tape
As mentioned practically every genre in film is expressed in this movie. Drama, comedy, love story, mystery, slasher-horror, psychological mind bender, and soft porn (straight, gay, bi, lesbian). In other words the greatest and cheesiest soap opera ever made. The plot? Well if its important it deals with a girl band, who become The Carrie Nations, moving to L.A. to try to ´¿make it´¿ following them as they get stepped on and abused along the way. The usual story of the manipulation of people, especially women, in Hollywood or the World in general by those who have already ´¿made it´¿ or think they have materially but not spiritually. The narrator sums it up at the end. ´¿There can be no beginning or ending that does not in some way touch another. For our actions affect the lives and destinies of the many.´¿ This is just one example of the self-righteous cheesy, but truthful, moralizing in the film. There are outrageous parties and bizarre incidents which convey ideologies of the time, psychedelic imagery, chromatic sets, early mtv style editing, soap operatic clich├ęs, drug-use, a sword wielding psudeo-Shakesperian spouting crazy, a bartending Nazi, a Liston/Tyson type boxer and a bloodbath. It´¿s not the plot but how it unfolds that makes this a true original and unique film.
I agree with others below. This is a postmodern classic. A panoptic view of the world formation of new subjectivity in reality that occurred in the ´¿60´¿s, of hybrid selves blurring mores and forming beyond the binary dualisms of a hegemonic and phallocratic culture. However, like the real Carrie Nation the film has a message of temperance and how the enjoyments in finding oneself through over indulgence in anything can lead to evil.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Big Limburger of Cheesy Movies July 14 2003
Format:VHS Tape
BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS isn't just a cheesy movie: it is the Limburger of cheesy movies--a devastatingly awful flick of such horrific proportions that it completely defies every possible expectation. For the first ten minutes I sat before the screen, slack-jawed in disbelief. Then I began to laugh. And laugh and laugh and laugh until I thought I might rupture something!
The story? It pretty much defies description, but in general it concerns a three-girl band and their boy-toy manager who move to Los Angeles and promptly go to pot. There are drugs, sex, some really bad rock 'n' roll, and before the credits roll we're even treated to a take-off (yes, I said take-off) on the notorious Sharon Tate murder and some of the most ridiculous moralizing in celluloid history.
As leader of the band, Dolly Read looks and acts like Barbie's friend Skipper after one course of hormone treatments too many. (At times I wondered if she was Ethel Merman's long lost daughter or a maybe just a really wacked-out Grace Slick in a red-wig disguise.) Granted, Read only has about three expressions, but she plays them really big, so you can't help noticing. Band side-kicks Cynthia Myers and Marcia McBroome have a few more expressions than Read, but they aren't nearly so powerfully emphatic about it, which is probably just as well.
The script is by Roger Ebert, of all people, and it tends to show that those who can do and those who can't criticize. Even so, Ebert gets off some pretty memorable licks in terms of one-liners. ("You're a groovy boy. I'd like to strap you on sometime" and "This is my happening and it freaks me out!" are probably the two most famous.) As for director Russ Meyer...

4.0 out of 5 stars Get away from me......or I'll cut you!!,
This is my first film by this director. I'm hesitant to guess what ignited my interest in the films of renowned sleaze master and independent film guru Russ Meyer. Read more

Worst thing that can happen to an already-bad movie is that it becomes dated, and alas, that's what became of "BVD". Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Cult classic on decadent LA lifestyle and human nature
No, this isn't a sequel to the horrid movie adapatation of Jacqueline Susann's Valley Of The Dolls. While an in-name-only sequel, it's actually different and better as a result. Read more
