The story of "Ozploitation" movies - a time when Australian cinema showed an explosion of sex, violence, horror and action. Includes anecdotes, lessons in maverick filmmaking and a genuine love of Australian movies.

You can watch NOT QUITE Hollywood as an eye-opening history of a somewhat under-appreciated subgenre or as simply a "greatest hits" of mind-blowing genre film moments. You will quite literally lose track of all the boobs, explosions, car crashes, mutilations, exploding heads and insane stunts offered up here. (I wanted to immediately watch it again to see all the stuff I missed!) A fantastically entertaining documentary, highly recommended to fans of action, horror, or any kind of exploitation film.
The film serves as a great starting point to research some fun flicks (I immediately sought out TURKEY SHOOT). But if you just want to watch a string of crazy, outrageous movie moments regardless of appreciating their context, go for it. You win either way.
