Schlock! - The Secret History of American Movies


USA 2001, 90 minutes
Dir. Ray Greene
Genres: Documentary, Cult / Film History

Topics: Period 1950s, Period 1960s.


Aroview: A suitably low-rent survey of 50s and 60s B-grade movies, with insights courtesy of Roger Corman, Peter Bogdanovich, David F. Friedman, Samuel Z. Arkoff, and more.

Lionising the reckless, rough-and-ready guerrilla tactics of said exploitation filmmakers, this is an enlightening, glassy-eyed timewarp back to an era of cinema notorious, yet largely underseen. Rare, classic clips of such oddities help fill in the gaps.
