Critic Reviews for American Grindhouse
In its academic approach, American Grindhouse is like sex ed: the lecture gets tedious, but it's worth sitting through for the pictures.
Nitpicky enough to please film-history nerds but lively in a way that should tickle the merely curious.
Traces the history, excesses, and glory of unsavory cinema, providing a magnificent education in the process, communicating the nuances and traditions of a brand often disregarded as forgettable schlock.
Highly recommended viewing not only for grindhouse fans but for anyone with an interest in film history.
American Grindhouse is a little vanilla in its presentation, but it's a pretty fascinating story nonetheless.
Audience Reviews for American Grindhouse
Informative, entertaining and unforgettable, American Grindhouse it's a great study about exploration movies, U.S. modern pictures inspirations, the fight to adapt "cinema fashion" and win money. A trip into remarkable and 'bad taste' films. Criative and inspired, dispite doesn't mention some important people in underground low budget industry cinema. Fresh.
This follow-up of sorts to NIGHTMARES IN RED, WHITE AND BLUE provides a history of (non-horror) exploitation films in the U.S. Compared to NIGHTMARES, this shorter documentary covers its shallower subject in greater depth (if that makes sense).
Not perfect. Skips over some important figures such as Roger Corman. However, a pretty excellent primer on one of the most notorious and misunderstood genres in cinema history.
