Abstract:

An off-road cinematic rampage through the masterworks of Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus: two movie-obsessed Israeli cousins who became Hollywood's ultimate gate-crashers. Following their own skewed version of the Great American Dream, they brought an already low-rent brand - Cannon Films - and 'flushed' into theatres more than 120 films (including Death Wish II, Breakin', Invasion U.S.A. and Masters of the Universe) showcasing ninjas, nudity, creaky monosyllabic action heroes, threadbare plots, unintentional humour and accidental moments of near-genius.
