Watch American Grindhouse
"Giving ‘Em What They Want Since the Dawn of Motion Pictures."
- 1 hr 20 min
The history of the American exploitation film genre is studied in this documentary. Robert Forster narrates the tale of how directors and writers created sordid or horrific tales (or both) to keep audiences coming back to see more. Interviews by John Landis, Larry Cohen, and others discuss how these grindhouse films sometimes walked the fine line between bad taste and fine art.
