ELECTRIC BOOGALOO: THE WILD UNTOLD STORY OF CANNON FILMS

DIRECTOR: MARK HARTLEY - AUSTRALIA

“Cousins Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus helped to create the modern Israeli film industry. . . . During the ’80s, Golan and Globus set up shop in Hollywood by purchasing The Cannon Group. Dismal titles such as The Apple quickly gained Cannon a reputation as purveyors of rotten movies. Despite the criticism, the pair . . . went on to produce a stunningly eclectic array of films, ranging from straight-up genre (Invasion USA; Death Wish 3) to more esteemed fare (King Lear; Barfly). Hartley expertly weaves together clips from Cannon’s back catalog with an impressive array of interviews with Cannon players. The result is a whiplash-inducing ride through decades of exploitation cinema and high-rolling business deals.”—Fantastic Fest.
