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

Celebrating a time when Australian cinema got its gear off and showed the world a full-frontal explosion of sex, violence, horror and pedal-to-the-metal action! Jam packed with outrageous anecdotes, lessons in maverick filmmaking and a genuine, infectious love of Australian movies, this documentary is a fast moving journey through Aussie genre cinema of the '70s and early '80s - a forgotten cinematic era unashamedly packed full of boobs, pubes, tubes...and even a little kung fu. With a host of familiar Aussie faces and a few Hollywood ones too, including genre fan Quentin Tarantino.
