This is in documentaries on the Bigpond Movies channel offerings.
It's about the sort of movies Australia has been really good at, but at the same time, exploitative, referred to as "ozsploitation".
It goes back to the days of Alvin Purple through Barry Mackenzie, Stork, Stone, right through to the modern offerings of Rogue, Wolf Creek, passing through Mad Max and a bunch of missing "classics"
There are reviews by Philip Adams, Steve Bisley, and expecially Quentin Tarantino, who was influenced, and loves the whole genre.
I really recommend this for the oldies who can remember some of this, and the current generation, who will be amazed at the kind of guerilla film making that Australia did, and the influence Australian made filme had. My 30 year old children sat and watched this with us, and it was a hoot for all.
Warning though, there IS a bit of nudity -as there ws surprisingly more of of back in the 70's and 80's.
Fast Cars, Explosions, lots of that too.
If I've helped in some way, a Kudos would be appreciated. Any opinions I express or advice I give are purely my own, and don't represent Telstra.
