      Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Some of the interviews go on a bit too long, the cutting is off in a spot or two, and repetition occurs briefly, but the education value is high.

      Audience Member Serves a pretty decent introduction to exploitation and sexploitation cinema. Fans of the genre will find little new information here, but it's interesting and accessible nevertheless. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Exploitation films are supposed to be sensational, exciting, and lurid. You would think a documentary on such a topic would have at least some of the subject matter's fun, but this documentary is just dry and lifeless. For a documentary on exploitation films that does retain the fun of it's source material, watch "Not Quite Hollywood" about Australian exploitation films. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Fascinating look at how B movies and exploitation films influenced the American movie industry. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member very cool documentary! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A basic history of films termed as exploitation aswell as a debate on whatg consititutes as exploitation. Very well made and informative documentary that takes its information from the source and guides you through the history and importance of some of the films and film makers. Compelling stuff. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Decent documentary about the exploitation films of the 50s and 60s. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
