Part sales pitch, part loving homage, part museum piece. You'll soon realise you can't call yourself a film fan without knowing who Stone, Bazza McKenzie and The Man From Hong Kong are.

Presented by a host of directors, stars and commentators (including the crown prince of cult, Tarantino himself) director Hartley has collected clips and comment on the genre Australia forgot in this fascinating, ballsy and wry doco.

Many of the films depicted were made with the same passion as today's maverick auteurs but in an era when cult cinema just wasn't cool they sank without a trace. Many are already on DVD and Not Quite Hollywood will generate big demand for those that aren't, so it's essential viewing for your Must See list before your next social engagement full of alternative film cineastes.
