I booked a few tickets for the BIFF tonight - one of which is this movie: Not Quite Hollywood. I bought a ticket to it before seeing any footage of it and now I've seen the trailer, I'm super fucking psyched. I wrote an essay discussing Australian horror back in 2005 and got top marks for it; seeing this trailer gets me all pumped up about them again and want to see some of the flicks in this Ozploitation retrospective like Patrick, Long Weekend, etc. I just wish Brisbane was showing more of the movies that the Melbourne Film Festival is showing, like Dead End Drive-In, Razorback or Roadgames.
Featuring Quentin Tarantino, Dennis Hopper, Jamie Lee Curtis, Steve Bisley, George Miller, (the late) Richard Franklin, Graeme Blundell, James Wan, Leigh Whannel, Barry Humphries, Jacki Weaver, Sigrid Thornton, Jamie Blanks, etc.
To quote Tarantino in the trailer - "This movie fucking rocks." I hope so. :D
If this doco is half as fun as the trailer, this may be the guilty pleasure highlight of the festival for me. It's getting a general release at the end of August through Madman.
Here is a second, shorter one on YouTube, with other snippets...
