    It's all very foul, and completely entertaining. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    A survey of the week wouldn't be complete without a left-handed salute--not to be confused with a backhanded compliment--to the gleeful rubbish of Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation! show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    What's cool and always kicky is seeing a country's irreverent movie trash being treated with such, well, reverence. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Beyond mere titillation -- and some good-natured laughs at the expense of genre cliches -- Not Quite Hollywood has a sociological edge. show more

    You might not want to watch all of "The ABC of Love and Sex Australian Style," "Turkey Shoot" or "The True Story of Eskimo Nell," but the clips on view in "Not Quite Hollywood" are a hoot. show more

    Film Threat

    Plays like a fever dream that won't quit until you lose consciousness or your lunch, whichever goes first. show more

    Los Angeles Times

    It's a kicky, slightly exhausting look at a bygone era of low-rent moviemaking, whose colorful trove of film clips should delight fans of cinematic esoterica, nostalgic schlock and high octane drive-in fare. show more
