Editorial Reviews

CORMAN'S WORLD: EXPLOITS OF A HOLLYWOOD REBEL is a tantalizing and star-studded tribute to Roger Corman, Hollywood's most prolific writer-director producer, and seminal influencing force in modern moviemaking over the last 60 years. Featuring interviews with Hollywood icons and cinematic luminaries, some who launched their careers within Corman's unforgettable world of filmmaking, including, Paul W.S. Anderson, Peter Bogdanovich, Robert DeNiro, Peter Fonda, Pam Grier, Ron Howard, Eli Roth, Martin Scorcese, William Shatner and many others, this documentary chronicles how Corman created his cult film empire, one low-budget success at a time, capitalizing on undiscovered talent, and pushing the boundaries of independent filmmaking.

Director Alex Stapleton weaves archival footage following Roger's illustrious career: From his early days of genre-defining classics including the original Fast and Furious, the original Little Shop of Horrors, The Crybaby Killer, The Intruder, House of Usher, and The Wild Angels (which at that point in 1966 was his 100th film) -- with present day video of him and his wife Julie on location still at work as they continue to produce and distribute films outside the studio system: fast, cheap and out-of-this-world!

Customer Reviews

Corman's World captures the man and his time and contributions to film.
Douglas La Rue
Most of his films still don't interest me, but the legacy he left behind and the things he accomplished that don't appear on the movie screen were amazing.
Brian E. Erland
Corman's World is, without a doubt, one of the best documentaries I've ever seen on film making.

Format: DVD
If someone had absolutely no idea who Roger Corman was, they would only get a fleeting and far-from-complete notion of him from this DVD. With way too much emphasis on his more recent, direct-to-video schlock one would hardly know that this amazing man is actually responsible for many, many very good movies! Why waste so much time on sleazy crap like DINOSHARK when Mr. Corman is responsible for both producing AND directing a damn good movie like FRANKENSTEIN UNBOUND? We see the poster for X - THE MAN WITH THE X-RAY EYES behind Mr. Corman in several of the interview segments - yet learn zip about it - or PREMATURE BURIAL or ST. VALENTINE'S DAY MASSACRE or VON RICHTOFEN AND BROWN or SECRET INVASION and so many more fine films. The Vincent Price/Poe cycle is barely touched upon. More time is spent in this documentary razzing the notoriously bad THE TERROR than praising any of the truly wonderful Poe films. On the sole basis of this documentary, Mr.Corman comes across as merely a slightly more evolved Ed Wood Jr. But the truth is Corman has true artistic talent - and not just for predicting and capitalizing on cinematic trends or being the godfather to so many talents that soared beyond the stratosphere and on to the stars that they eventually became whilst Roger Corman remained earth-bound. Make no mistake about it. The man is an artist.

The luminaries who are interviewed for this documentary are mostly wasted. The majority of them have very little to say. Robert DeNiro is gone in the blink of an eye. Why was Bob Burns even bothered? Quentin Tarantino's contribution is mostly stock. Unless I blinked and missed something, why is there no mention from Peter Bogdanovich of Mr. Corman's pivotal role in the making of TARGETS, the film that launched Bogdanovich's directing career?

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Movie-making maverick Roger Corman gets his due in the fun and enlightening new documentary "Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel." One of my contemporary pet peeves is how everyone tells me they love movies, but then those same people have no sense of cinema history. I believe that to really love something, you have to have an understanding of it beyond what plays at the local mall! Corman is the classic example of someone who has always worked on the periphery of the traditional entertainment system, but who has left an indelible legacy within the film community. And I will pay Alex Stapleton's film the highest compliment: It made me want to go back and watch and/or re-watch a lot of films. From his cheesy low-budget films of the fifties, to a counter-culture leader in the sixties, to the master of exploitation in the seventies--Corman may not have always made good films, but he definitely seemed to have a pulse on what appealed to popular audiences. I think it's fair to say that he is the definition of indie film.

If you have no idea who Roger Corman is and you claim to love movies, this is an easy recommendation. And if you are already a fan, this is an easy recommendation. While Corman's film contributions have been marginalized over recent years (now he tends to lend his name to SyFy network creature feature mash-ups. Some are campy delights, some are dreadful) he is finally getting the respect that is his due. A well deserved Honorary Oscar ceremony was attended by some of the industry's biggest names--most of which got their start with Corman. Here is a sampling of talent that owe a career debt to Corman: Martin Scorsese, Jack Nicholson, Robert De Niro, Ron Howard, Jonathan Demme, Joe Dante, and Peter Bogdanovich.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Surprisingly touching portrait of a man who has made movies for the rest of us!Was happy to see all the "big" stars remembering who gave them their first break.Roger Corman does films for the rest of us, and what i mean by that is he makes non blockbusters, which to some might sound like a bad thing, but to me, it's great! He makes weird, bizarre films and i love him for it!One thing that really surprised me was how gentle and sophisticated he is, not having seen many interviews with him before i was really surprised at how humble and gracious he is and totally unjaded.Loved Jack Nicholson before seeing this movie, but i must say i have an added respect for him now, it was very touching seeing him talk about Mr Corman.Just ordered 2 more Roger Corman classic dvds, so i can enjoy the master for hours to come!

Any fan of the prolific B-movie mogul Mr. Roger Corman should enjoy this bio-pic/documentary about his life and career. It focuses mainly on his early films and later work, and skims over those in between. Unfortunately, some of those were some of my favorites, like Battle Beyond The Stars. Aside from that though, this was an enjoyable documentary about a film-maker who played by his own rules and did things outside the studio system that had never been attempted before. He was the first real indy film maker on the Hollywood scene as it were. There are a lot of big name actors featured in this documentary, and it was fun to discover some who I hadn't realized had got there big breaks in Roger Corman films. If that sounds at all interesting to you, then you'd likely enjoy this incomplete biography of one of Tinsel Town's most innovative and off-beat film makers.
