Kataman1 More than 1 year ago
Roger Corman's story is amazing and this documentary helps to show that though he was the master of the "cheap" film he was incredibly creative and an inspiration to many of the greats in the industry. It is amazing who got their start with him (Peter Fonda, Jack Nickleson, William Shatner, Robert DeNiro, Peter Bogdonovich, Martin Scorcese, Frances Ford Coppala, Bruce Dern to name a few). Thoughout the documentary we see Corman still filming in current times and he still makes those inexpensive films with the same zeal as he did over 40 years ago. The documentary shows many of his films that were the inspiration for huge Hollywood hits like Easy Rider. Somebody stated that Roger could make Lawrence of Arabia well for a half million dollars by filming the entire film in a tent. We get incredible insights into the making of many of his films especially from Nickleson and Bogdonovich. It was interesting that the movie The Terror had no plot and Corman used one of the actors to explain the whole plot of the movie to another actor in one scene. It was a very interesting documentary especially because he made all these films on a shoestring budget. I was pleasantly surprised by this film and it is one of the better Hollywood documentaries that I have seen. Should not be missed!
