Storyline

In 20 years He's directed more films than Martin Scorsese, He's produced more profitable movies than Jerry Bruckheimer, And he's infuriated more actors than Alfred Hitchcock. The ultimate B Movie Documentary, focusing on B Movie Giant Jim Wynorski (and B Movie Celebration Mentor) and his attempt to make a feature film in 3 days.He's directed seventy feature films, but he's never made one... in THREE DAYS .Jim cuts the shooting schedule, has the actors cook their own food. A documentary featuring B-Movie legends Roger Corman, Andy Sidaris, Julie Strain, Julie K. Smith and Stormy Daniels, Popatopolis follows Jim Wynorski as he begins to film one of his many opuses "Witches of Breastwick" Jim's frenetic pace demands 100 setups per day (the Hollywood standard is 20), and he reduces his electric package to just two lights so he can concentrate on the task at hand.A great overview of a true master at work and in many ways a laser sharp dialectic on the state of B filmmaking today.

A Man Who Deserves a Documentary... Now Gets One!
10 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When it comes to B-movies, the modern master has to be Jim Wynorski. While Roger Corman (whom he had previously worked for) will likely be the all-time king, Wynorski is today's reigning master (though Fred Olen Ray may have a chance at the crown).

Having Lloyd Kaufman and Tom Savini praise you must be the highlight of the low budget career. Working with Heather Locklear, Julie Strain... discovering Jennifer Love Hewitt? He may make a lot of terrible films, but he has left his stain on the film industry permanently! And, hey, he made "Chopping Mall". Even if he never made any other film, that alone seals a place in horror, science fiction and film history. That ranks among the all-time greats.

Not sure what his obsession with breasts is, but he knows what he wants and he gets it. So, well done.
