  • In the 1970s and 80s, it wasn't just the Americans and the Europeans making gritty, grindhouse-worthy flicks. This documentary reveals that down-under directors made audiences both cringe and clamor for their brand of sex- and violence-infused films after the advent of the R-certificate. Featuring appearances from Quentin Tarantino, Jamie Lee Curtis, and other film legends, NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD celebrates the films that would make the censors and film-ratings boards cry.
  • Critic Reviews
    "[T]he raw material makes for good, not-so-clean fun....Prolific producer Tony Ginnane, stuntman Grant Page, writer Everett de Roche, George MIller, Dennis Hopper, and others talk up both craft and mayhem."
    Film Comment

    "[A]n affectionate, rollicking guide to the drive-in classics of Australian filmmaking from the 1970s and '80s....Mark Hartley directs with fan-boy enthusiasm, his hyperactive style perfectly tuned to the movie's wealth of trashy clips and trash-talking interviewees."
    New York Times

    "The Australian genre flicks of the 1970s and '80s receive a jam-packed documentary tribute in Mark Hartley's NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD....[The] colorful trove of film clips should delight fans of cinematic esoterica, nostalgic schlock and high octane drive-in fare."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[W]ith all their dull bits excised, a lot of these movies look like neglected pulp masterpieces, ripe for rediscovery on DVD. Think of NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD as a vividly illustrated catalogue of astonishing smut." -- Grade: B+
