Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

Surprisingly, there's a very sour tone to "Corman's World" that undercuts a lot of the attempts to look back at Roger Corman's films with a laugh and a nostalgic gleam.

[I]f it doesn't offer anything new to our understanding of Corman, as filmmaker, producer, or person, it nicely encapsulates his legacy...

At one point in this joyful documentary, Jack Nicholson discusses the countless cheapies produced by Roger Corman and cracks, "By mistake, he actually made a good picture every once in a while."

Along the way this documentary interviews the likes of Nicholson, Ron Howard and (of course) Corman himself. Add some scarce footage and you've got a winner that is sure to please die-hard fans as well as newbies.

Almost any documentary on Roger Corman would be fascinating, and Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel, directed by Alex Stapleton, is certainly that.

Like many of the 400-odd movies Roger Corman has produced and/or directed, Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel has a title that sizzles over content that merely simmers.

A well-earned and affectionate spotlight on a man who, let's face it, is one of the most impressive film producers who ever lived.

None of it gets us anywhere truly close to the beating heart of an essentially retiring figure.

Stapleton's structure is fairly by-the-numbers, but with a subject as fascinating (and archival clips as entertaining) as this, the quality is onscreen as soon as you turn on the camera.

Yes, it's all straight-forward, no muss filmmaking, but Roger Corman wouldn't want it any other way.
