Storyline

Completely topless! Completely uninhibited! The wayout craze that began in San Francisco is now exploding across the USA and Europe. National publications have documented the "Topless", but nowhere has it been as thoroughly covered (or uncovered) as it is in Russ Meyer's rampaging motion picture Mondo Topless. The film is believably real - but "unbelievable" just barely describes all of Meyer's discotheque discoveries! Fantastic women, fantastic dances - the "buxotics" - in an incendiary tribute to unrestrained female anatomy featuring the world's loveliest bosom brigade! Written by pressbook synopsis

Trivia

There are close-ups of the tape recorders used during the interviews with some dancers, enough for the brands to be read - namely one portable Vista in a beach and a larger Akai M-8 Cross Field in a bedroom. Also, one Panasonic and two Sony portable FM-AM transistors at pool scenes. See more »

Too Much For One Man
9 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

'Mondo Topless' is Russ Meyer's pseudo documentary that starts out with snapshots from San Fransisco with narrator (John Furlong) praises the city's progress. Images of San Fransisco is cleverly cut with seemingly unnecessary shots of topless woman driving the car. It doesn't take long when the film turns its focus on different strippers dancing and their recorded conversations about their thoughts and troubles.

'Mondo Topless' is visually beautiful film (in here I don't mean the nudity, but cinematography) with many interesting shots. Almost monotonous monologues of strippers over the groovy pop-rock and girls dancing gives the film quite surreal feel. The humor is subtle as left hook from Mike Tyson. The film keeps its tone and rhythm all the 60 minutes, and by the last quarter, it starts to get little bit boring.

Russ Meyer is much more talented and smarter than many think based on his films, and 'Mondo Topless' proves his intelligence besides the love of big bosoms.
