"Not Quite Hollywood" is the wild, wonderful, untold story of "OzPloitation" films. It irreverently documents an era when Australian cinema got its gear off and showed the world a full-frontal explosion of sex, violence, horror and foot-to-the-floor action. Free-wheeling sex romps! Blood-soaked terror tales! High-octane action extravaganzas! They're the main ingredients of "Not Quite Hollywood", the first detailed examination and celebration of Australian genre cinema of the 70s and 80s. In 1971, with the introduction of the R-certificate, Australia's censorship regime went from repressive to progressive virtually overnight. This cultural explosion gave birth to art house classics, such as "Picnic At Hanging Rock" and "My Brillian Career", but also spawned a group of demon-children: maverick filmmakers who braved assault from all quarters to bring films like "Alvin Purple", "The Man From Hong Kong", "Patrick", "Turkey Shoot" and "Mad Max" to the big screen. As explicit, violent and energetic as their northern cousins, Aussie genre movies presented a unique take on established conventions. In England, Italy and the grind houses and drive-ins of America, audiences applauded Australian homegrown marauding "rev heads" with brutish cars, spunky well-stacked heroines and stunts - unparalleled in their quality and extreme danger. Full of outrageous anecdotes, a large cast of local and International names and a genuine, infectious love of Australian movies, "Not Quite Hollywood" is a fast-moving journey through an unjustly forgotten cinematic era.
