Director: Mark Hartley
a documentary about the austrailian film industry from the 70s and 80s and how outrageous they were. sex and violence and cars.
I liked this one. It was pretty great. Informative, engaging, comprehensible. A good doc.
Not doing a very good job of reading the description, I had expected this to be a discussion of the more serious side of recent Aussie fare such as Baz Lurhman. It was only a pleasant surprise to see the true development of the film industry down there, especially as it was these sort of "*sploitation" movies that made the newer works possible. Narration by Tarantino was really cool, and not just because I love me some Tarantino; he had a real point of view and it was obvious that he knew his material.
I added probably a few too many movies to the queue as we were watching this; but since before we started el Woman and I had a discussion of this notion I feel no real qualms.
pretty awesome. i don't have much to say about this one because it was good, and well done. it made me want to watch a lot of terrible exploitation movies.
