    • Excerpt: [Mark] Hartley may be irreverent in his approach, but it’s clear that he loves this stuff. Electric Boogaloo (which gets its name from one of Cannon’s own films) shares that love with the rest of us.
  • [New – 2/26/15] | Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
    • Excerpt: It is, as per usual for Hartley, a giddy, lightning-paced celebration of cheerfully terrible movies.
  • [New – 9/11/14] | James Marsh @ Twitch
    • Excerpt: Mark Hartley’s unofficial biography of Cannon Films impresarios Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus is equal parts reverent and dumbfounded in its depiction of these maverick Hollywood outsiders. Bottling the same level of ravenous reportage for Cannon’s bountiful output as Hartley pumped into his Ozploitation expose Not Quite Hollywood, he again creates a roller coaster ride that is as crude, cocky and shamelessly entertaining as the films themselves.
