Centric podcast you dont generally try to alienate audiences we're not attempting to now it's just a natural by product of the exploitation. Film can't talk about exploitation, films without talking about some lurid subject matter here, because the exploitation without ploys yeah they weren't, exploiting this people, be a nice ripe, all about moving air. This is by by popular quest to an extent people want to see like em. They, they wanna, hear talk about movies into two movie pike S. We decided to focus on exploitation, films, try. This is us
I think I said more violent, the old boy yeah they they get. All boy is one of the main characters and, eighth, greater younger and you're. Using this as a teaching tool, you may want to go to the one before this one You dont generally try to alienate audiences we're not attempting to now it's just a natural by product of the exploitation. Film can't talk about exploitation, films without talking about some lurid subject matter: yeah peculiarly exploitation without ploys they weren't exploiting this people, be a nice ripe, nice quotation so Chuck, I want and saw a movie the other day call. I saw the devil korean movie it by the guy, who did the tale to say I think I said more violent, the old boy yeah they they get. All boy is one of the main characters and most violent thing. I've ever seen in my life, some most graphically violent movie. I've ever seen in my life, though how was the other one
right, but I walked out of it like it so over. The top is so gory right is clearly an exploitation them alive and well yeah. But the problem is like really be start to look around John Hume films. Technically. Are exploitation of the breakfast club is technically and exploitation thumb, yet the dough big wave of teen exploitation, films and we'll get to that, but yeah you're right. So one of the broader definitions of exploitation. Films is basically anything this really like over the top. That is most violent thing, I've ever seen in my life, the most graphically violent movie, I've ever seen in my life, though The only reason it like I was able to complete because, unlike this is a movie and right, but I walked out of it like it so over. The top is so gory right is clearly an exploitation them alive and well yeah, but the problem is like really, you start to look around John Hume films. Technically. Are exploitation of the breakfast club is technically and exploitation thumb, yet the dough, the wave of teen exploitation, films and we'll get to that, but yeah you're right. So one of the broader definitions of exploitation, films is basically anything this really like over the top. That is, a party were account shot out the chimney and into the pond meant a pretty nice party
I think it's really basically, you know Is it up in a larger than life manner? That's one way of looking exploitation felt here, your basically it they're, exploiting some of the senior aspects of humanity must I'm sure, like murder or sex like weird sex. That kind of thing have sex jars at, like, maybe a low level community college? Yet as point after the amount of research we ve done in this short, and we found the academic Lee this. There is a much more distinct definition for exploitation. and its seemingly interchangeable term. Greenhouse right yet was the. Is there a definition? Definition, it's it's more like a timeframe. Ok! So from like night, nineteen think it's really happen. You know. So that's sixty fifty nine. When the haze act went away, you all that was exploitation and then, after that does give became greenhouse, ok, gotcha, it's my understanding, Students are right. Well, that's your joke. Was it in the autumn documentary american Greenhouse, which documents this this era of filmmaking the old joke. One of the guy says is that exploitation films began five minutes after the camera was invented them.
Motion picture gamer because the guy was like the directors lay to his girlfriend. Hey, would you mind taking your clothes off hand, heckling? So it's it says about the human condition that you invent. The film camera and the first moving images were often lurid, Edison's film. It should clips of like decapitations and violence, and guys fighting and knit naked women as film test. So it's just that says a lot about people like are now and not a capture. Things so was captured sex and violence right first right and dumb, although that really can it gibes with public taste or at least public fascination, it didn't job with the prevailing standards. The agreed upon standards right right, at least ninety nine him, but the first exploitation fellows nineteen, thirteen, ok traffic insult or while New York sleeps right, and that, like you, said, exploitation, often placing the fears that played to the fear, at the time of the White Slave trade budget of fifty seven Gran engrossed, four hundred and fifty thousand dollars, which nineteen thirteen slot Adele. That is a ton and though- and that was universal pictures in their hey, can under some here right after that was released. The haze code will hazels the postmaster General Presbyterian elder and he was making a hundred grand a year during the depression, unbelievable right. He he basically said like look. We need. We need to apply some moral standards through making there's the competition there's naked breast there's, there's wise white slavery like we need to. We need to fear this up right now. She, then there was a nudity. Yet like us early test films, there were but nudity we'll get to that later. Ok, but yes, what has tried to do? Unlike prohibition? Didn't exactly quell drinking the haze code, actually sort of gave rise to exploitation, movement yeah, it's just like just like prohibition, just like marijuana prohibition dislike or any drug prohibition. Any time you say you can't do this. You can't have something that you want the somebody else's students are right. Well, that's your joke was that in the autumn documentary american Greenhouse, which documents this this era of filmmaking the old joke. One of the guy says, is that exploitation films began five minutes after the camera was invented them
motion picture game, because the guy was like the directors late to his girlfriend. Hey, would you mind taking your clothes off the thickly, so it's it says about the human condition that you invent the film camera and the first moving images were often lurid, Edison's film. It should clips of like decapitations and violence and guys fighting and knit naked women as film test. So it's just that says a lot about people like are now and not a capture. Things so was captured sex and violence right first right and dumb, although that really can it gibes with public taste or at least public fascination, it didn't job with the prevailing standards. The agreed upon standards right right, Althesa, ninety nine him, but the first exploitation, almost nineteen, thirteen, ok traffic insult or while New York sleeps right, and that, like you, said, exploitation, often placing the fears that played
to the fear at the time of the White Slave trade budget of fifty seven grand and gross four hundred and fifty thousand dollars which nineteen thirteen slot Adele, that is a ton and though- and that was universal pictures in their hey, can under some here right after that was released. The haze code will hazels the postmaster General Presbyterian elder and he was making a hundred grand a year during the depression, unbelievable right. He he basically said like look. We need. We need to apply some moral standards through making there's decapitation. There's naked breast there's, there's wise white slavery like we need too. We need to clear this up right now.
She, then there was a nudity yet like us early test films, there were but nudity we'll get to that later. Ok, but yes, what has tried to do? Unlike prohibition? Didn't exactly quell drinking the haze code, actually sort of gave rise to the exploitation movement yeah? It's just like just like prohibition, just like marijuana prohibition dislike or any drug prohibition. Any time you say you can't do this. You can't have something that you want the somebody else's operate in a black market, a black markets going to spring up simple economic, and that's exactly what happened and that's where Exploitation Cinema came up like you can't get this from Hollywood, because Hollywood has to play by the rules, but my production studio, is my model t and let's go make this movie gimme some money, I'm going to film a child being born close up and put it in places sort of out of the way where they can't get caught, and that was for the first time either taking films outside of the main stream different. Sometimes you want even theatres. They would show like VFW halls. If you wanna go see
did then what are you doing or not like? There are trying to do some good but you're not making any scratch so the forty three, they talk about in the documentary. Were these filmmakers and exhibitors? Basically, that travelled around my carnies setting up. These sort of guerrilla film screenings hen places, sort of out of the way where they can't get caught, and that was for the first time either taking films outside the main stream different. Sometimes you want even theatres. They were children like VFW halls. If you wanna go see birth of a baby founts appearing here. Popular yeah, there's a whole genre. Genre exploitation well and so Zalm, early on a lot of the young also in people were going on that excuses. Well, I call I need- and I need to know about this, but at the same time it's like. I want to see this through the craziest thing filmmakers weather a time tat. They were cautionary tales. If they were about drugs, error violence, they would say hey. This could happen to you here, so you should educate yourself, but what they really want to get there may be seen in make some money exactly
presenting their stuff like this is a public service. People need to know this right and and making movies about it, but also in people were going on that excuses. Well, I call I need an I need to know about this, but at the same time it's like. I want to see this through the craziest thing. Ever seen in my life correctly. You know right screen or they argued, at times it they were cautionary tales. If they were about drugs, error violence, they would say hey. This could happen to you here, so you should educate yourself, but what they really want to get there may be seen and make some money exactly. Will it seen a lot of death recently, while lotta death and they're, not the little more they thought Ladys in suggestive rolls were could no longer own their own movie theatres at the time. You know that there would be like the Paramount Theatre in Hollywood from the parent, that of loosening on the sex thing a little bit of world war, two enough that lead to another subject of exploitation: film, the Nudist colony film,
no more and all the sudden exploitation films became a little bit more logic is the hasty. China fell apart. You and the supposed we're we're too. So We have seen a lot of death recently where a lot of death and they're, not the little more they thought Ladys in suggestive rolls were four morale it was maybe maybe That of loosening on the sex thing a little bit elsewhere were to enough that lead to another subject: honour of exploitation, film, the nudist colony film. or long walks naked or could be no sex still. That was still no taboo, but it was dislike naked, pretty people right at Nootka Colony, which is interesting because of most of these were part of his document document, which legitimate through the history we had things like I'm the teen, like you, said the teen rebellion of the fifties with the rebels to call. It was found that a news camp, probably not morosely. There were actors and actresses just engaged in archery, naked
or a long walk snaky there can be no sex still. That was still no taboo, but it was dislike naked, pretty people right at Admetus Colony, which is interesting because Yours could see movies where their parents working to be fairly, the adults didn't go to drive in the lot of her. I saw kids, I didn't know so they showed exploitation films in them. The beach films which were marketed as ITALY. It's silly its Frankie Avalon, but they were decidedly weird and overtly sexual sometimes and then check your view if, if you'll notice, like we're, jungle and movies, like that all the sudden were targeted, specifically at teens, which was the logical order. Then each thing is kind of being built on. The last is very much a step process. yours could see movies where their parents we're gonna, be fairly. The adults didn't go to drive in the lot of her. I saw kids, I didn't know so they showed exploitation films in them. The beach films which were marketed as ITALY, it's silly its Frankie Avalon, but they were decidedly weird and overtly sexual, sometimes and then Chuckie view, if, if you'll notice and in a lot of ways they are presented, documentaries they might not have apart right and basically it was one person would make some film
a logical order. Then each thing is kind of being built on. The last is very much a step process. Their people make similar film right and in the same, that that was the way it went and then, in the nineteen sixties, things are starting to go every which way all sorts of direction dry. So nudity nudity films were of a long standing thread of exploitation, films and then they probably reached their pinnacle with Rough Myers right. King of the new deal is what is called yet he was the first guy too. He significant, because he was the first direct or to have films featuring nudity that act, we were dramatic narratives and had plots and characters, and they weren't classified as a documentary anymore and then the right and in a lot of ways. They are presented. Documentaries. They might not have a plot right and basically it was one person would make some film we just break all the rules and then the budget
their people make similar film right and in the same, that that was the way it went and then, in the nineteen sixties, things are starting to go every which way all sorts of direction dry. So nudity nudity films were of a long standing thread of exploitation, films and then they probably reached their pinnacle with Rough Myers right. King of the new deal is what is called yet he was the first guy too. He significant because he was the first direct or to have films featuring nudity that act We were dramatic narratives and had plots and characters, and they weren't classified as a documentaries anymore and then the right came along and they offered up violence for the first time but big time for the first, right, and that has a lot to do with the fact that there was a sixties and Kennedy was shot in. The United States was just becoming increasingly violent. America lost it.
The other thing that really happened in the nineteen sixty was the haze code. Officially went away was replaced by. Mph and see the I guess. The long standing, prohibition on Hollywood producing exploitation, films was, but it was lessened decreased. Yet so studios were like We can make money over here too. Well, let's start making exploitation films right and this is where greenhouses bored. So my cinema, professor definition of greenhouse, is big budget studio, backed exploitation, film, ok, yeah, that's that's mine! I like it. That's gonna, be a quick question. I'll go with that actually been back at one. Second, we gotta mention are Herschel Gordon Louis. He was a director who had a co director came the other guy's name here anyway, That is a co director and he was one of these exploitation guys. It was getting frustrated because there were in London,
to show your movies those pretty crowded marketplace, so he said: what's the one taboo that, like people pay to see that you you're, allowed to show in theatres, but studios won't make it was Gore. Oh yeah, he was the first guy to start showing healthy disgusting buddy scenes and his movie blood fees, Leadford Steer, which acts three years after psycho and Psycho also delight for the mainstream ushering in of sure little bit. In that, but others like but a shot of blood following then at least murder trend in which is an amazing, pretty graphic for Hollywood right, So you think of you, like others, stupid sixties, but that's you know there's so naive, yeah. That was controversial. Now, really, though, like if you step just slightly outside of Hollywood, you ran into things like blood feast right or in a last awesome left. Yes, well, that's nineteen. Seven
I think you're West Craven, so that was important because all of a sudden, a drug started, while three things political theme started popping up right: sexual freedom, the youth generation drug started popping up and movies for the first time drug use, while not for the first time now we'll talk about refer manager, but teenagers were depicted as victims of violence for the first time. Like last, us nonetheless believe this can be regarded as the first team flash of him yeah West Graven. It was almost a snuff film. It was always regarded like they're, pretty hard core, but yeah definitely blood, if he's definitely aloud thousand left to come around, but it also probably more directly form the foundation for slasher exploitation like I did a thirteenth nightmare announced street, absolutely my bloody valentines another the trees and raise the crazy out
That was an original riders agreement now think remakes. Sales force brings companies and customers and Philly together how we bring, connected commerce and city centre. Together we bring spired, marketing and historic legacy together and all where the two and five we help you customer service and customer success together in this job sales force the world's number one crm we bring company, customers together visit sales, dot com, slash, learn more mother. Under says. Thanksgiving is one day in November this year, at WS. If S bank, we are giving thanks every day, thanks for a call back
Some zoom calls and curbside pick up thanks for reconnecting with distant friends and foreseen close to neighbours at a distance thanks for finding the silver linings and rediscovering life's simple pleasures, but mostly we're giving thanks to you for striving each day to keep life moving forward whispers. We stand for service. Member of the ice, evil housing wonder So that brings us we're in the seventies politically charged movies brought race into the to the x and all of a sudden. We had a black exploitation or black citation movement, starting exporting Silver Rights movement, basically, but the cool thing about by exploitation, films. For the first time you had African Americans as heroes, yeah and not here
was in a typical since not even anti heroes, heroes that we're like they didn't write. The town and on a white hoarser wearing a white hat right they very clearly wore black hat. If need be like they would engaging crime, they were murdered. Boy. Maybe they were they. They were basically like the face of Black America coming out of the civil rights error. Like we're ticked off yet and we're going to to get to the White Man's ticket to the man and we're gonna. Do it in these movies. Another movie about two m dimension is this: is it You For me, are you MA? Am favorite,
your baby. So, yes, that was a landmark them for a lotta reasons, one because it gross four million bucks and it made you're studio, say You know what the black Euro is marketable. Yet we haven't had a title it I didn't know: ok, you got to say I did not invent people's Foma Sweet sweet backs bad song. Nice is whether there was nineteen. Seventy one now, the man than peoples whose lives they may sound familiar, who is the Father of Mario Van peoples for younger cats? Listening to this, one gets our age actually younger cancer, because he's kind of like ok, so categories, clutched yeah, that's, moreover, and people's dead. You know
the city yeah exactly so Melvin the appeals made this movie, he produced city. He raised the money for it, he wrote it, he directed at start in it, and it was the beginning of the blacks flirtation sub genre, which is one of the most. important genres of any Americans, Fit Cinema Absolute ever absolutely and So considering how important that subject areas, this quote from time: magazines, film critic, Richard Corliss, should really hit home. Sweet sweet back is quote without question or competition. The most influential movie a black filmmaker. So this is a really big deal right. Yeah it was. It was just a quickly. planet was about a black man who was a gigolo? who had. It is a male positively young and he had a deal worked out. The cops where he was. He said you know you can arrest me as much as you want He's me right, afterward failure quota, it's all good and then one day
while the arrest is going down there. The cops attack, a black, panther and sweet sweet back, kills one of the cops and then just says, discuss on a rampage against a white man after that, so you ve got prostitution time and tons of nudity insects blossom violence and other crimes, all wrapped up into a black power theme the train and then to top it all off, you have what is arguably a child sex. Seen starring Rio Van People's Melville son. I think age, six days kid S having sex as sweet, sweet back. First sexual encounter with an older persons right and in the coal podcast. If you would became coat leader, he would have taken a younger brother. Remember I entered
so if you're interested in that movie and you can't get enough a sweet sweet backs bad ass song. You could also check out bad ass exclamation point, which is more of its peoples. I'll pick about his father, making them that's right, and I have not seen that but wanted to at the time in a disrespected cracks. There's always Netflix baby and what happened with sweet sweet back was that, like us, they told the studios head. We can market this. And so they get a little more mainstream of movies like Superfly, which were little safer, shaft shaft movies, a wide audiences would enjoys well yeah, the ones that didn't scare the man. It's heckling,
chefs a good guy. He doesn't taken a gift from the man, but the people is not enough from or the cops who is really on the same side: ass, the train so check by exploitation. Obviously huge effected everything from a menace to society, to blackmailer the hollow that came from sweets. We back, and am we mentioned. The guy who directed this next movie rust
minors. This is probably a seminal worth listening to his clip from the trailer one, ladies and gentlemen, going go while while ride with no one to be where we are getting a yard was why our own safety, while while we re not matter now, maybe you think that under even if they do they make among the alibi brown they make. The mafia, with like Browning,
that's right and it says acquainted bit about them. So this there was faster, Pussycat, kill, kill nineteen sixty five Russ Myers. Basically, women, exploitation, film, Neue film, remember rough Marsh's, king of annuities Liddy's he may twenty six movies put. This is probably at the very least his best known. Not like his masterpiece, yet he hatched slew of I mean that that he wasn't legit. He was. But what in mainstream people college it filmmakers were came out through the rough Mire film camp basically suspect. yeah and rest. My also will in fact movie? That's mention in this article there's an article on site by the way called ten noteworthy exploitation, films that this is based on read my yeah, which I share. recommend going rigour that has a lot of extra stuff Rowena, covering this one year or at least extra movies. But
Russ, Mired directed a movie called beyond value the dolls to write, which was the bastard sign of the legitimate film but beyond valued right. Ours is a jiggle fest written by none other than Roger either it's his eye Do you ever wrote yeah, he had a yes, very brief crib. That's it that's an illustrious one, really yeah. So if you're gonna talk about the plot, a faster pussycat kill, kill, and I say that Khazars three explanation points as represent a comma exclamation point kill. I don't always it three exclamation point. without a common into our either way. That's a lot of punctuation for film title and it was about three bisexual: go: go dancers. They gonna crime spree out hazard, and what do they do? They end up killing a man and or another killed a man and a couple keeping rural. They basically empower her. Come on with I murdering her boyfriend and she and abundant crimes for you with them, and they
basically end up going to isolated house with a wheelchair, bound old man and signs of whose allege they're all legislation these women yeah, but they don't know that these women are tough, no tight, lady the men and assign the man and his sons apparently are allegedly have a large amount of cash stashed in this house. It's kind of like a stand off of of God who will come out on coffee alone? You never comes out on top. This film was no worthy for one big reason was that those lot of dual is or genders on one hand his expire these women and apparently got women in their first trimester pregnancy. So there were more voluptuous yet not in this film, but in his other foger you he would hire camera the Ladys, namely the star, faster Pussycat Kyoto, is, in other rest, Myers Films, catch, and he made sure that she was like well indoor, third, first trimester too, to enhance her natural bus Venus. That's right,
if you will, but the script like a set of tourism, because while he did that and also empowered women, because the women in his film bowed to no man. No, they were the champs. They were the heat. There were penguins really for the first time, but they were. They were objectified very clearly, but at the same time, if you follow the script and really look at their characters, then yet there there powerful women and this kind of kicked off a big city. of women, exploitation, films, exploitation, films than women, imprison movies, yes, which really sisters very big I'm women were led actors for the first time they were aggressors for the first time, still nude. then, while they were doing stuff spun, a television show the facts of life, But the interesting thing is they found that these movies appealed to men and women, as men would guess he had for obvious reasons. Women would go see it empowering and they didn't mind means looking at the naked ladies
His women are much more grown up to that. but just the seventies. So I got a little sloppy, which in a sense, was true to the exploitation yeah? They like, they really went over the top, no more political state. Hence no more advancing, that women's gender or, or African Marin's Americans. It just got really shocking outrageous that what happened in starting in the six really took hold in the seventies and then from that point on was exploitation. Cinema early on showing alive birth, nudist camps, these raw geared towards it in the sixties and then later on big time. In the seventies, the audience became almost exclusively teenagers like those driving in Agers orb wall and teenagers anywhere who kiss, but they ve the audience was teenagers and the cap,
to become teenagers, so it had a little more of a ban on what teenagers are having to deal with a bullying like that. The the kid in this next clip right, which is, I have to say one of my favorite movies from way way back here- go with toxic avenger little Melvin he's a ninety ban, weekly everyone Melvin Young gonna pick this map and shouted down your throat teased him. I want to do with you They taught in NATO, amended eventually into a bag of nuclear waste. Transforming little now enjoy hideously deformed creature of superhuman string suggests the tax Avenger movie was unique in that its film production company trauma
is very popular in their own right. Have you ever seen surf Nazis must die. I have but I know that even trauma mean their master self promoters in marketeers stay if they were one of the first production companies to have a website, like a really comprehensive websites. You gonna website that their whole catalogue really does well done sloppy but its, whether right and tax Avenger follows a story that ninety eight pounds weakling, whose picked on released seniors, Ghostbusters, Noisette nineteen, eighty four right yes, I was it occurred at zero year. Zero years, you will just put the now set that, and I did this kid gets pushed out of a window into that of toxic sludge which that's beyond yeah really near me that this is the basic later
twisted version of modern problems that Chevy chace them from a couple years earlier. Nokia and, as you know, our universal modern Romagna as very silly, but he got toxic sludge dumped on him and had said powers from years earlier. Prior hereafter, what when was the movie There was a two years before toxic avenger, but toxic avenger took it into a girl or special effects, way that that modern from, Thirdly, the janitor Melvin, I believe his name is becomes toxify, becomes taxi the toxic avenger, who beats the tar out of people at the health where he was abused in an mutated and has tons of sex as the toxic avenger, because his New found, manhood is just irresistible. The women and
Only one of the things that no worthy about the tactic. Avenger is that they actually tried to make decent defects yeah. It wasn't just it wasn't too horrible. I guess you could say that for the time in a one man no theory, they remain bad and they Polly were kind of bad, even back then, but for the first four greenhouse film. Yet there they were their great right and there is also noteworthy because it came out of trauma. Productions are trauma studios and it to a whole line of toxic avenger movies and lock in general, which is basically like some crazy, horrible thing has happened, but we're not going to dwell too much on their. Let's see what what's, let's see where the action takes us exactly like a bad taste, the Peter Jack Peter Jack. First film right is a great example shylock that came out
of toxic avenger and he had the summit followed Peter Jackson, debt alive, which was at one point supposedly the glorious film ever made, grew, although it sounds like you're new Korean Matthias surpass that yet I think it probably has agency that allows in bad taste in bad taste was horribly gory, but I think this says it be year better better. If any em you haven't seen them one you're talking about, but is it more realistic Gore year with by great religious minorities, are aliens at her home in their heads blown off. The definitely takes you at least of aim agree away from carrying right, as is happening. The human beings in- and I saw the devil. That's so deftly is driven home alone, well in the violence that even the Gore back then it was so over. The top right out. A finger magazine. Psyche know: dude vainglory is still around. Is it yeah I figured it was? I am glad it is. We followed on twitter feed that we do not like a hidell explode and scanners, and you know it's not disturbing cause, it's so clearly over the top, but these new movies are much.
Disturbing, if you ask me, I agree wholeheartedly because a more realistic carrying on with checks in my school and even act. This is the second to last movie in our little list today and on this point from way back from the thirty. So let's talk about for madness. Boys and girls are having a hard at the local soda fountain Thirdly, they Dan of a new and deadly menace lurking behind closed doors. The burning we'd when its roots in hell watch case, you mean bill ones:

dot com, Slash Watson assistant, to learn more so that was the excellent refer madness, which was an exploitation, drugs, flotation foam and very much a cautionary tale at even shaped the drug culture and how people looked at drugs. is Nina Marijuana at the time. Is this really evil thing that can make you crazy, kill people yeah an actual in very much the vein of early exploitation, films. It was produced and distributed. as a public service like? Was it the alternate title, for it was tell your children and the whole thing set in a pc, a meeting where this guy is relating the story, and it's a story about. lost lives about murder, about
TIM paranoia and all of it is fed and based on rampant drug use, which is really disallowed a pot smoking which continue into a fiend in its apparently the director his aims, Dwayne spur? He did other exploitation films from thirty like sex, madness, right, psychotic connections, and he made a name for himself. Basically, taking these things that may have originally been written as a public service right in making them so outlandish. There he exploited the people who were making these movies and created this legacy of like this, Insanely over the top exploitation films from the thirty one ironically refer madness years later, would become not so much an anti drug propaganda thumb, or should I say this, but a film that college students would sit around and watch while partaking
and laughing at this whole thing and occult them because it puts drug so far out there. There dumb if you, despite all the warnings, take drugs anyway and you realize that you dont train or feed murder, somebody you re refer madness- basically dares you to go further. So it's in its the opposite, has the opposite effect of what I think its original intent was before doing us forget his hands on it and, as I say, no, I had troubled. Deciding between refer madness and another nineteen. Thirty film, by a guy named TA, Browning, called freaks. oh yeah. Well, that was that was huge because it was the first big exploitation, film, pre haze code or the annex, yeah for an online videos, Arisen, MGM, film yeah and is widely considered a masterpiece. Zambia looks great it's it's not. It was well done, it's a huge job, it is a revenge,
which is a very common theme in exploitation: films, yeah they specially violent ones, but its it featured browning dared to have real freaks. I guess if you'll, yes, circus, sideshow Freaks yellows star in and they basically exact their revenge on people who mistreated them and I have not seen it really yeah. I want to. I hear it's just awesome. I can read: it ended his career, the hot, unfortunately brown. Really and he was a popular filmmaker. The time well hats off to him for first stained, true to his art check. This took his hat off on your cap. I chuck here's the last we got a cloak for which I think everybody on notice. I recognise, without even a word, there's not even a word in this clip and you'll understand. What's going on so that here again
suggests those the unmistakable sounds of this, of fury, when Mr Bursley briskly kicking bottom, this first movie yeah, which was originally title. Well is still title, I think in Asia, the big boss, and in America it is its its title. Vista It was on the other nine on cable assault, part of it. Oh yeah, I didn't realize it was the first one out of tune din yeah, and it was first of what five five major films right in basically it's
story of a martial arts student whose investigating the murder of his teacher and on it began the martial arts exploitation sub genre, which later would become, does martial arts homes right or was still considered exploitation. It's all the same thing at one and the same anything that even remotely resembles a brutally movie, specifically the big boss or any of em, is martial arts exploitation technically Because again we arrive at that. One definition is over. The top, like personally, is taking on scores of anonymous thugs: to one after the other for two hours is being the Torah volumes. People with tiring, really everybody's, can awaiting their turn politely in a circle around no money has to be everybody right, and then he works his way up in its over the top. So it is exploitation, but it led to others.
like samurai exploitation, member american ninja. Remember the whole ninja film thing that guy and amid eighties, that's from brutally some that's Presley's doing boy. You gotta these. The time when I was first going any many years ago there would be a unique at a time. Swearing still in Times Square can a gross, and there would be just the the martial arts movie store where it was all that stuff. May I thank and of movies about ninjas and samurai in Marshall Artist and fair big, I was inspired by American into to become an inch member entered into training autonomy Roper. explore throwing the stars in any kid. I learn. What did you like wondering, sir? I borrowed has actually I was not allowed to have thrown starting my own. I was neither that is now very violent, known, your job is not even though that transcends like religious background. It's like you get there. Lay your kid have throwing star is a good point.
as you point an article, this actually lead to another subject area, which was Bursley, look alike movies. Yes, so he made I've movies, dynamic, died at age, thirty, two here and nineteen. Seventy three, so big boss release in eighteen, seventy one he dies too later areas like, oh, so let's find some guys that look like him, which is really kind of stereotypes and racist, either the west by asylum, Bruce Leave, Ally, orderly or l e r. Just Ellie there were Bruce ally or hurries Ellie right. I don't think there is like Bruce Ellie. I e g h until they get it but I mean they release dozens of Bruce lee- and I just made air quote films that so brutally created the martial arts, exploitation, Jonah and Sub Jonah, and he inadvertently created the Bruce Lee Exploitation Sub genre of the martial arts exploitation subjects.
my dying, young and being very popular near and which one was the one he had cream till Jabbar. In that There are the dragon if you ve, never seen it like seven four plus guide, you martial arts, you should check that out and if can't get enough Priestley and you have a good sense of humour, check out Kentucky Fried movie made by juries writer her years on, we met in LOS Angeles. Recently You guys are used and exploitative to me. There was one of the high points of my life. It is, but you can take you for a movie awesome. Actually, when we met Jerry's occur, we told them that our little speech given that night was one of the highlights of our careers thus far, and he says: well, it didn't say much about your career. Does it think the first thing to do is yes M funny and we dislike kind of fond over mad at me, mention briefly and it's an article, but I just as a teacher the late seventys. We got nazi exploitation movies, nazis flirtation as subjects
yeah and one of the major players, their movie wise, was Ilsa. She was of the S S yacht, which led to Elsie Siberian, Tigris and Ilsa Harem Keeper the oil sheets, everything as a whole sex violence, franchise, dominatrix franchise. There was based out of the Nazis Plantation film, you, no one could argue that Q t mister turn teen out has made nothing but exploitation founder, sense, pop fiction, guess he did the kill bills Definitely, martial arts export nationally. The Jackie Brown was a rift honour on black, like orientation death proof. Obviously that was what they are trying to do. Their death proof is cars flirtation which follows in the tradition of vanishing point. Which was released the same year is basically a rival to the the founder, the founding movie of cars, plantation tooling, blacktop right, whereas money, if you want
start, an argument with an exploitation film bath tell him vanishing point was the beginning of customs formalities and then finally, turn Tina with Thea Inglorious Bastards, which is clearly a arrive on the Nazi exploitation phobia beaten Nazis. The death of the baseball bat yeah about is over the top and look Awesome, yeah, I'm so, and then machete, I hated it. Robert and she s it's terrible and of course he was the other half of the year. Rodriguez's other half with his planetara greenhouse double feature: yeah. Ok, the machete was born from one of the little faked trailers they made in that moving closer. I yet was one of the figure movie. Previews is even his like a purposefully, be moving again now. Well. Death prefers ok, but I didn't like Planetara there much and then chuck well, first of all, before we get to today, we also have to give a shot out too knows: porno came out of the exploitation, films genre and it
arguably had a lot to do with killing the x or pushing it into the mainstream. Because once you had the movie deep Throat and all of a sudden a pornography, on the screen. Like you came to an end. rotation from about anymore. If there's the real deal going on it, it loses all its power. And then a little movie got jaws came along and all this a cordon quote, be movie style movie, made gobs and gobs of money and that put a little bit of mainstream respectability on the map of the sudden, and so one might argue she's, dead movies, I jaws and pornography kind of shoved exploitation films, even though they still exist there sort of mainstream. well yeah. I guess another word for greenhouse these days is blockbuster Charles. The first block, but had her movie you summer, blockbuster and now you have have some are blockbusters in there always over the top and exploitive of viewers tastes and not a waiter.
You know, there's other filmmakers out that are trying to capture that seventies. Vibe win over exploitation, phones again shot that way. Saddam thirty firearms area, sixty millimeter film stuff, like that, so I say our message to everybody is number one: goin to the site red ten, noteworthy exploitation. Films number two: if their interests, like, even though ten noteworthy exploitation films I chose, don't cover. Even I think, a third of the exploitation sub There is still a pallaby another article forthcoming at some point. If there is well it you know and then go watch some exploitation movies and enjoy them Watch the documentary american greenhouse too. If you knew that yeah, it's a great one, free on Hulu?
