Russ Meyer: Brilliant Auteur or Flesh-Peddling Degenerate?

From "the incredibly strange film show", a late 80's british tv series featuring american directors like john waters, herschell gordon lewis, george romero and ed wood, and even some lesser-known cult directors like doris wishman, ted v. mikels and ray dennis steckler. I taped and saved all the episodes when they were broadcast stateside on a cable network a couple years later, but this russ meyer episode never aired in america due to copyright issues. I just saw it for the first time. It's a well-made retrospective of a diverse and talented filmmaker. If you haven't seen "mudhoney", "faster pussycat" or "beyond the valley of the dolls" since college, give them another spin. part 2 part 3 part 4
