Corman's World: Exploits Of A Hollywood Rebel Reviews

Page 2 of 3
Fred Topel
Screen Junkies

Most of Roger Corman's movies are not good, but the stories behind them are fascinating. So Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel tells the Roger Corman story, in his words and, even better, in the words of his famous employees.

As far as hagiographies go, Corman's World is breezy and entertaining enough to be absorbing, especially for the uninitiated.

The movie delivers a compelling argument for appreciating the filmmaker as a major artist who's both largely responsible for many mainstream Hollywood cinema trends while somehow remaining superior to them.

To fresh eyes, Corman's World may feel more like a meal; to the rest of us, it's merely a glance at the menu.

This bio-documentary about Roger Corman is a treat for buffs -- who might complain that the zillion clips are too few and short.

It's nice to see the greatest hits, and to listen to Corman's refined paternal baritone as he talks about his work.

Watching the legendarily cool Jack Nicholson literally CRYING about Roger Corman will put a lump in the throat of even the most jaded viewer.

The doc offers a well-rounded treatise on Corman's indelible influence, benefiting from a strong cast of talking head contributors.

The funniest thing about Corman -- it's a joke he's in on -- is the disparity between the movies he makes and the precise, polite, almost scholarly demeanor he projects.

Vastly diverting documentary about cinema's foremost purveyor of commercial crap, sparked by colorful interviews and a certain element of surprise.

An excellent introduction to a director equally adept at following his own vision and nurturing those of others.

A movie about Roger Corman should kind of look like a Roger Corman movie - fast and cheap and a little battered around the edges. And entertaining as hell.

Though many fans don't know it, Corman's taste runs to foreign-language films, and in the '80s he produced work by Bergman, Fellini and Antonioni.

A highly entertaining tribute to Roger Corman, one of Hollywood's most prolific, enduring and unconventionally influential film producers.

His films may have been disreputable, but the picture that emerges in this documentary is of a decent, loyal and sensible man who has spent his life making marvelous trash and sowing the seeds of art.

The most poignant idea to emerge from Corman's World is that in fact neither man nor mogul can control quite everything, perhaps nothing less than his legacy.

It's the typical, from-the-archives, scrapbook approach that makes Corman's World the safe bet that it is.

Goes down easy enough and gets significant mileage from the high wattage interviewees.

It's an exuberant valentine to a man with the uptight exterior of a junior bank president and the incorrigible soul of a carnie as well as a tribute to getting art, or at least entertainment, made by any means necessary...

Brisk and funny, a documentary that feels like it should be a mock-doc but has the advantage of truth.
