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.

ABSTRACT
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.
