Roger Corman is perhaps the most prolific and influential Hollywood filmmaker mainstream America has never heard of. Alex Stapleton’s documentary Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel attempts to rectify that injustice by not only examining Corman and his filmography, but also by attempting to explain why the writer-director-producer is more than just a low-budget schlockmeister. Featuring interviews with heavy hitters of Hollywood including Jack Nicholson, Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Jonathan Demme, Ron Howard, Eli Roth, David Carradine, Peter Fonda, William Shatner, Pam Grier, John Sayles, Brett Ratner, Bruce Dern, Paul W.S. Anderson, Peter Bogdanovich, and many more actors and filmmakers. 2011/color/89 min/NR/widescreen.
