You've heard of Hollywood, a town of tinsel and glamour, the town of Paramount, Columbia and MGM. But there is another Hollywood, a place where maverick independent EXPLOITATION FILMMAKERS went toe to toe with the big guys and came out on top! "SCHLOCK! THE SECRET HISTORY OF AMERICAN MOVIES" takes you behind the scenes with the legendary EXPLOITATION and SEXPLOITATION filmmakers of those golden "DRIVE-IN" MOVIE days. It's sexy! It's strange! And every word is true! Written by
Ray Greene (director of the film)
What a weird and revealing documentary this is! Lots of clips from old exploitation sci-fi and Russ Meyers-ish nudie movies, but with interviews and commentary that makes you stop laughing at the pictures and then start reflecting on them. A truly unique and evocative experience, and one that will be full of surprises for anyone who isn't already a big cult movie watcher.
