Not Quite Hollywood | Ratings & Reviews

"An incredibly energetic and merrily messed-up celebration of Australian B-movies."

Herald SunHerald Sun

"Not Quite Hollywood contains as many crazy characters and improbable events as its recent fictional counterparts, except that the people are real and the stories all true."

The AgeThe Age

"An entertaining and bizarre guide to the movie-making wave that respectable cinema history forgot..."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"An affectionate, rollicking guide to the drive-in classics of Australian filmmaking from the 1970s and '80s."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"It's all very foul, and completely entertaining."

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"An enlightening, pleasurable peek into one of cinema's more enticing dark corners."

Time OutTime Out

New York PostNew York Post

"A vividly illustrated catalogue of astonishing smut."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"The clips burn throughout this film with a tone as giddy as its subject."
