Trivia

While Jack Nicholson was being interviewed about his association with Roger Corman, he was so overcome with emotion recalling how much Corman had done for his career during Nicholson's early days in Hollywood that he broke down and began crying. See more »

Quotes

Allan Arkush: [Discussing film 'Hot Box' 1972] Roger will just say exploitation pictures don't need plots. They need sensational things like girls shooting Filipinos out of trees. That works.

Someone Managed to Exceed My Expectations
1 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A documentary on DIY producer/director Roger Corman and his alternative approach to making movies in Hollywood.

As a fan of horror, science fiction and cult films, the name Roger Corman is legendary in my home. I have watched and reviewed countless of his works, and interviewed more than a handful of his colleagues. To say he is the biggest influence in the history of modern cinema is an exaggeration, but not by much.

What I found most interesting about this documentary was that it covered so much that I did not know. I was aware of Corman's connection to Scorsese, Nicholson and Demme. I knew about James Cameron (who is practically ignored here for some reason). But I did not know about Shatner and "Intruder"... and indirectly the "Twilight Zone"?

This is a must-see for all fans of horror, science fiction, and film history in general.
