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!

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?Read more ›
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.Read more ›
It's production values are good as it has interviews with many hollywood icons who reminisce about their days working for Corman. What's here is good, it's just not what I was hoping for. I was looking for more in depth information about the earlier part of his career and maybe some new stories. What we get is just a smattering of information from the various parts of his career. Still, what's here is pretty good.
Recommended for Corman fans and independent movie makers.
