We're not really sure who the hell Mark Hartley is, but over the last few years he's become one of our favorite documentarians. After the giddy, go-for-broke fun of his "Not Quite Hollywood," which exposed the rest of the world to the fast, cheap, and crocodile-infested world of Australian exploitation cinema, he set his sights on a similar cultural export in "Machete Maidens Unleashed," about Phillipino expoitation cinema (and its relationship with western cinema). While not as gut busting and awesome as "Not Quite Hollywood," if you told us we'd have to watch "Machete Maidens Unleashed" once a day, everyday, for the rest of our lives, well, we probably wouldn't complain. Hartley is once again set to appeal to the little kid who stays up past his bedtime to watch questionable movies on late night premium cable, with his new documentary "Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films." We didn't even know about this one yesterday, and now it's one of our most anticipated movies of 2012.
