Aro Favourite Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films


Australia 2014, 107 minutes
Dir. Mark Hartley
Rating: [M] Violence, offensive language, sexual references & nudity
Genres: Documentary / Film History

Topics: Turkey, Period 1980s.


Aroview: A wildly entertaining trip through the heady rise and fall of The Cannon Group - a prolific film production company responsible for countless low-to-medium budget genre 'classics' and turkeys in the 1980s, and for the dubious resurrection of the careers of Charles Bronson and Chuck Norris.

Run by expatriat Israeli cousins Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, whose hands-on, gonzo attitude to art and business left a messy legacy, recounted here by many of the actors and crew who had the (mis)fortune to work with them.

The third in director Mark Hartley's trilogy on maverick film movements (preceded by NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD and MACHETE MAIDENS UNLEASHED).
