The Cineast

The film director Russ Meyer
has made some cult movies,
with classic titles like
“Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!” and

His actresses seem to be cast after their
cup sizes and when he answered my letter
he had enclosed a signed photo of himself
holding a giant bra where he’d filled the
cups with two large melons.

I heard our young son asking his
mother about the Russ Meyer photo on our wall

- Ask your father, she said.

And, for once, I was the film expert
in the family.
