This has to be one of the best documentaries ever to grace a cinema screen. Following the history of Australian made exploitation films, and the burgeoning Oz film industry that grew from this oft-forgotten genre, Not Quite Hollywood follows the rise, rise and headlong fall of Ozploitation. Featuring interviews with the directors, producers and critics at the height of their game during the 70s and 80s, not to mention the modern master of the genre film, Quentin Tarantino, Not Quite Hollywood is a hilarious ride through plot-holes as big as Ayres Rock (yes, of course we needed some gratuitous Aussie reference in there somewhere) decorated by bad props and buckets of blood-splattered-gore.
