If I had have done a top ten list for 2008, Not Quite Hollywood would have definitely been on there. Perhaps top five! It is a rollicking, action-packed, liberally sexist and exciting good time at the movies. It's like GrindHouse, but in documentary form. And with Aussie accents. And with more nudity. MUCH MORE nudity.
I think, perhaps, Playboy put it best:
How can you not love a flick that combines fascinating insight on a little-known film movement alongside insane car crashes, telekinetic corpses, cross-dressing, lesbian vampires, female and male nudity, cannibalism, cringe-worthy impalements, post-apocalyptic satire, karate chops and Quentin Tarantino discussing cars as a masturbatory inspiration?
So very very true. Please see this movie. It is truly fantastic and you won't regret it. I really do need to rewatch that movie. It's bloody brilliant and saying all this reminds me that I still need to see all of these great "ozploitation" titles. I have them on my Quickflix queue so maybe I should bump them up to the top?
Here is the American trailer by the way. Just watching this reminds me how great it is. It is edited through a shredder, but for once that's actually a good thing!
