Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel (2011)

Director: Alex Stapleton. 95 min. Rated R. Documentary.

If you know Roger Corman (and the guilty pleasure of exploitation movies), this documentary is a treat. If you don't know him, you need to improve your cinema knowledge, by watching this biographical on the B-movie king who produced/directed more than 350 films, and gave some names an initial shot in the movie business: Martin Scorsese, Robert DeNiro, Jack Nicholson, William Shatner, Sylvester Stallone, Ron Howard, Tommy Lee Jones, Peter Fonda, Pam Grier, Jonathan Demme. The fact that some Corman proteges (David Carradine, Dennis Hopper) are already dead, and many are interviewed here, makes this a must-see for film fans.
