2012 #122 - Corman’s World
There’s not much I can say about this film besides the fact that, even though I knew plenty of these yarns, I still loved the hell out of it. Roger Corman, no matter your opinion on the quality of his films, is a part of film making history. Be it his own directorial efforts, the independent film company route he went on because of big Hollywood taking the majority of profit, the way he found some of the best filmmakers around and gave them their first break (Scorsese, Coppola, Dante, Cameron, Howard, Demme, etc), how hard he works and is always on a set no matter how big or small the film is. Even though today his name is pasted on some horrible SYFY films, I still respect the man and what he’s done for the business. A great documentary that all film lovers alike should watch. Especially for an emotional Jack Nicholson. I can’t wait to see what Alex Stapleton does next.
