American Grindhouse – Doku-Trailer
American Grindhouse ist eine Doku über die Geschichte des Exploitation-Films und sieht superinteressant aus, fraglich ist natürlich, ob und wann die Doku hierzulande überhaupt zu bekommen ist. Snip von der Filmwebsite:
The feature-length documentary American Grindhouse explores the hidden history of the American Exploitation Film. The movie digs deep into this often overlooked category of U.S. cinema and unearths the shameless and occasionally shocking origins of this popular entertainment. Exploitation Cinema has left an incredible mark on American culture, and this informative and amusing documentary proves that its principles – and popularity – endure to this day.
Starting at the turn of the 20th Century, Exploitation Cinema emerged from the tents of carnie sideshows, reared its ugly head in the first true Exploitation features like Traffic in Souls and Freaks, brushed shoulders with hard-boiled Film Noir in the ’40s, came of age with the teen flicks of the ’50s, razzed Hollywood’s stodgy Production Code with innumerable „Nudie Cuties“ and „Roughies“, rode high on the hog with the biker pix of the ’60s and pimp-slapped some jive turkeys during the „Blaxploitation“ boom of the ’70s. American Grindhouse takes a fascinating look at the films, filmmakers, hucksters and hustlers who made it all happen.
