films. Join QUENTIN TARANTINO, JAMIE LEE CURTIS, DENNIS HOPPER and many others as they take you on an irreverent journey through the 70 s and 80 s, an era when Australian cinema got its gear off and showed the world a full-frontal explosion of sex, violence, horror and foot-to-the floor action.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXPLOITATION FROM DOWN UNDER October 6, 2009
Most people think of two movies when they think of films from Australia. The most popular was CROCODILE DUNDEE, a film which a friend of mine from Australia says most folks there would like to forget. The other is MAD MAX.

This low budget exploitation films kick started the career of Mel Gibson as well as a slew of apocalyptic visions on film that involved car chases in rusted out, souped up, turbo charged vehicles. A world where marauding packs of gun toting savages ruled the streets until the hero came along.

But there was more to films coming from Australia than these. And the recent release NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD celebrates those films as well as informs viewers of gems they might have missed. Comprised of clips and interviews, this well rounded documentary gives us examples of everything from sexploitation films to the already mentioned road chase flicks.

The DVD begins in the seventies when the restraints of censorship were somewhat lifted and there was an influx of films that were bawdy but harmless in the long run. Think back to films like CANDY STRIPE NURSES and STUDENT TEACHERS and you get the picture. Films that were the mainstay for many drive-ins across this country were sprouting up in Australia with a decidedly Aussie flavor.

But the rest of the world began to pick up on these gems as well. Exploitation films had arrived and were re-dubbed ozploitation. Films like ALVIN PURPLE that told the tale of a young man who women found irresistible, who all wanted to bed, started as far back as 1973. The film was so successful that it spawned a sequel. And many more films featuring over exposed men and women followed.

But it wasn't just sex that sold. There were monsters and gore films as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Fun January 18, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A great overview of a few wild years in the Aussie film scene. Will send you to your netflix que to look up some of these movies, although for a lot of these movies it's just the best bits of a bad movie that made it into the documentary. Very fun- watch it with friends and some beer.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST EXPLOITATION FILM DOCUMENTARY EVER! August 31, 2009
This fantastic film serves as a Valentine to the halcyon days of Aussie genre movies, indeed 'Not Quite Hollywood' is all the things that Australian movies of today aren't: Fast paced, energetic and hilariously entertaining.

Even if some of the films weren't that great, the stories about them by the people who made them are often riotously funny. And it serves up two unsung heroes of the Australian film industry in director Brian Trenchard-Smith and superhumanly tough stuntman Grant Page.

The anecdotes fly thick and fast about a more free wheeling time in Australian movies when men were men, women were women, giant feral pigs threatened the box office - while vomiting on US 80's heartthrob Gregory Harrison- and political correctness didn't exist. It's a roaring good time, fuelled by the memories of the main players on both sides of the camera.

It's also a slap in the face to the ghastly, inbred navel gazing films that are mainly the Hellspawn offspring of the government teat today. These anti audience abominations are all Oz seems interested in producing (with a few notable exceptions like 'Kenny' and 'Wolf Creek'). Part social realism, part cultural relevence (whatever the Hell that might be) and all complete tripe that can only be enjoyed by people who store their eye's in the same glass they put their teeth at night.

'Not Quite Hollywood' is something of a retrospective vaccine to all that. In fact it's transcendantly good. You don't have to be particularly interested in the subject matter to have a great time watching people having a great time making some great -and not so great- genre movies.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Documentary for Shock Film Fans October 3, 2013
This documentary is hosted by Quentin Tarantino, Jamie Lee Curtis and Dennis Hopper. It was released in 2008 and it is a very interesting look at Oz-ploitation films from the 1970's and early 1980's. Many film clips are sprinkled throughout the documentary. If you like horror or cult films you will probably enjoy this because it is a lot of fun. It's far better than many similar documentaries but it won't suit everyone. Not Quite Hollywood meets some needs because many fans of this film genre are starved for coverage and production stories anyway. It is at least a step above any slasher movie doc I have watched. Not Quite Hollywood may offend some people but if you don't like the subject matter you probably won't watch it anyway. The 70's was known for soft-core sex, gory horror, car chases and shock value in Australia (and the US). I have not seen all the Aussie films covered so if you are not an expert on Oz cinema you will appreciate the info because most of it will be new. The frequent movie clips will be enough for some people but other fans will be inspired to track down those old exploitation classics to judge the films for themselves.

Special Features: Commentary with Director Mark Hartley and The Ozploitation Auteurs, Deleted and Extended Scenes, Quentin Tarantino Interviews Brian Trenchard-Smith, Audio Interview with Director Richard Franklin, Funding Pitches from Quentin Tarantino and John D. Lamond, Photo Gallery

For a brief time in the seventies Australia produced some entertaining films, mostly B grade, notable for gratuitous nudity (but not porn) and frequently lots of fake blood. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Director Hartley captures another genre perfectly
Fantastic! Right up there with "Machete Maidens Unleashed." Cannot wait for Mark Hartley to take on "Cannon Films" from the wacky and wild days of the '80s.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best films about film I've ever seen.
If you like your movies to be intense, vulgar, action packed, obscene, and just plain insane, you'll love deep dive into the explosion of Aussie film in the 1970's.

An excuse to waste celluloid, which is what this was. And I wish I had the 20 minutes back before I shut it off.

You can watch NOT QUITE Hollywood as an eye-opening history of a somewhat under-appreciated subgenre or as simply a "greatest hits" of mind-blowing genre film moments. Read more
