Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Ozploitation is a thing. The low budget exploitation cinema of Australia may have rarely troubled our shores but the films, filmmakers and actors were too important to todays current crop of movie makers to not be recognised at some point. Enter 2008’s Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation – a wild, crazy documentary that breaks down the key films, key players and key fans (including Quentin Tarantino) of these often insane and often near unwatchable movies. It’s a ball, especially if you grew up loving low budget films. There’s stories, footage and tales here that you will relish. A real must for fans and wannabe filmmakers a like.
Best Bit: Seeing David Hannay (an old friend) on screen! Also loads of amazing film clips
