Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation! (28-Jul-2008)|
Director: Mark Hartley
Writer: Mark Hartley
Keywords: Documentary, Filmmaking, Australia, Explosions
Documentary focuses on infamous Australian exploitation films of the 1970s and 80s.
The Australian government's 1971 introduction of an "R rating" for films led to an explosion of Aussie-produced flicks containing a level of lowbrow humor, violence, and sex never before seen in a heretofore puritanical society. Not Quite Hollywood examines this curious phenomenon, termed "Ozploitation", telling of its influence on the careers of performers such as Mel Gibson and directors like Quentin Tarantino.
