nly cult enthusiasts will appreciate The Godfather of Gore as cinema history. The rest of us are left with a bunch of great stories about cheerfully unsavoury characters.

This entertaining portrait of the legendary exploitation filmmaker is probably more fun than actually watching his films.

It would be naive not to expect bad taste in a movie about bad taste.

Initially enjoyable, the doc grows overindulgent of its subject.

Crammed with clips, behind-the-scenes footage and other archival material, this documentary love letter to pioneering exploitation filmmaker Herschell Gordon Lewis is aimed squarely at fans of his boundary-testing gore and nudie movies.
