Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation! (2008)

Documentary, Action, Horror, Exploitation, Comedy, Cult 1h 43m 2008

As Australian cinema broke through to international audiences in the 1970s through respected art house films, a new underground of low-budget exploitation filmmakers were turning out considerably less highbrow fare.

Documentary filmmaker Mark Hartley explores this unbridled era of sex and violence and action and horror and outright hysteria, complete with clips from some of the scene’s most outrageous flicks and interviews with the renegade filmmakers themselves.

“All in all, this is a celebration of Australian exuberance, a national ethic of adventurousness and enormous charisma.” — Desson Thomson, Washington Post

“It’s all very foul, and completely entertaining.” — Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
