A pretty comprehensive history of exploitation movies with excellent interviews, namely from Eddie Muller & John Landis ("THE ROUGH HOUSE, BOYS! THE ROUGH HOUSE!") The final Kim Morgan interview segment and its deafening awkward silence fallout cracked me up & I felt like I learned a lot. The best part of American Grindhouse was many of its interview subjects admitting to the fact that most of these movies are crap.
Gracias a este documental, divertido y superficial, descubrí que: 1-) Necesito ver Truck Turner y The Tormentors. 2-) Kim Morgan debe ser la movie geek más sexy del mundo. 3-) John Landis es un tipo genial y gracioso como pocos...su comentario sobre La pasión de Cristo, de Mel Gibson, me mató.
I'd recommend double billing this by watching 'Midnight Movies: From the Margin to the Mainstream' While the title is very apt in it's perspective and intended subject matter: 'American' - I think that for the whole picture someone needs to direct a movie that incorporates the whole proliferation of films that migrated from Europe and Asia to the Grindhouse scene.
Fun for cult movie fans, especially the interviews with a who’s who of legendary B-movie filmmakers, but it sometimes plays more like a breezy clip show than a real in-depth look into a fascinating side of film history. Worth watching, but I’d like to see a film that goes a bit deeper.
