Earlier in the year I tried to get y'all to see Not Quite Hollywood. Granted, it was released on, I think, one screen, but I know there are readers out there who live in New York City who would (should) eat this movie up like catnip.
Thankfully the documentary has received an American US release today (10 October). You can add it to your Netflix queue (you will, won't you?) and be assured that you'll have a bonza time watching all sorts of hilarious, bizarre, weird, frightening, insane and revolting stuff that the Australian film industry served up to audiences around the work through the 1970s and 1980s.
You want giant buck-toothed wild boars? That'd be Razorback!
You want Mr Whippy vans masked as killers and pretending to be a sequel to Halloween? That'd be Snapshot!
You want Dennis Hopper playing a bush ranger while stoned and drunk? That'd be Mad Dog Morgan!
You want a magician having an affair with a politician's wife while saving children from cancer? That'd be Harlequin!
You want a sci-fi college slasher flick written by future Oscar-nominee Bill Condon? That'd be Dead Kids!
You want Olivia Hussey attacking a mustached prison guard assassin with a machete? That'd be Turkey Shoot!
And they're here along with about 200 others. Look, this movie is flat out amazing. It was by far the most entertaining cinema-going experience I had last year so it's a shame people didn't get the chance to experience it like that, but on DVD with a big bowl of popcorn (make sure you don't knock it out of your lap from laughing too much) and a sense of wide-eyed enthusiasm I am sure it'll work just as fine. I'm sure you won't regret it.
