This love letter to the Australian exploitation movies of the 70’s and 80’s is filled with a love and respect for the genre. Sure, the quality of the films may be lacking but the love for them is clear in its subjects.
Australia has always had a funny relationship with movies. For such a large and amazingly picturesque country the quality output has been lean.
Very few critically acclaimed films are featured in this fun and funny documentary.
Sex. violence, action and horror are the focus of N.Q.H. and here we get quite an extensive look into this sleazy genre.
With a plethora of interviews with the key players, we get to see behind the scenes at this creatively (albeit sleazy and exploitative) time in Australian cinema history. Derided by critics, these films made money and made films at a time when the local film industry needed an injection of some sort that kept the country in the annals of film history during that time.
Featuring interviews with Barry Humphries, Quentin Tarantino, Stacy Keach, Jamie Lee Curtis, Brian Trenchard Smith, Russell Mulcahy, George Lazenby and George Miller this is a very entertaining look into the seedier side of Australian films.
