Just about as fun as it sounds.

This is an excellent documentary that covers the sordid history of two exploitation filmmakers. The film is not a full-blown comprehensive study of exploitation film, but concentrates on the two sextagenarian filmmakers in question. It's as much a study of these viejo's lifestyles as anything; some of the best moments (besides the salacious, hilarious film clips) are of these guys walking around their apartments, looking for thermos lids and other non sequitors.

Mau Mau also has the distinction of being one of the first films shot, edited and distributed entirely through digital mediums. One reason for this was the filmmaker's desire to maintain financial and creative control over his own work. To that end, this film is a testament to the DIY ethic of true independent film. It just happens to be a damn good time as well.
