  1. Would have benefited from more flamboyant film clips and fewer folksy conversations with the garrulous old-timers it focuses on.

    If you are a devotee of sleaze, you'll salivate at the prospect of Mau Mau Sex Sex, a fond and fawning look back at exploitation, or grindhouse, movies from the 1930s through the 1960s.
  3. No B-movie fan, save perhaps the extremely obsessive for whom this is old hat, should miss it.
  4. This spirited documentary shows us the hazards of filming volleyball at nudist camps and the marketing possibilities of women mating with gorillas.
  5. 50
    Entertaining, if maddeningly superficial.

    A diverting and delightful visit with two unheralded indie cinema veterans with a surplus amount of anecdotes and zany film clips.

    A film for fans of this alternate universe of movies that flourished as soon as the 1934 Production Code effectively excised most prurient, violent and otherwise titillating material from Hollywood films and withered in the '70s as mainstream movies finally caught up with the indies.

    There is too much rambling contemporary footage here and not enough juicy historical material.
