As Australian cinema reached international audiences in the 1970s through respected art-house films like Peter Weir's Picnic at Hanging Rock, a new underground movement of low-budget exploitation filmmakers were turning out considerably less highbrow fare.  

Documentary filmmaker Mark Hartley lovingly explores this unbridled era of sex and violence. Not Quite Hollywood showcases clips from some of the era’s most outrageous flicks and interviews with the renegade filmmakers, as well as Hollywood legends like Quentin Tarantino, Dennis Hopper and Jamie Lee Curtis.  

‘It's all very foul, and completely entertaining.’ – San Francisco Chronicle  

‘A feast of mammaries, monsters and bloody mayhem … an affectionate, rollicking guide to the drive-in classics of Australian filmmaking from the 1970s and ’80s’ – The New York Times

Presented on a 35mm film print from the NFSA collection.
