Critic Reviews for King Cohen: The Wild World of Filmmaker Larry Cohen

All Critics (7)

A respectful chronological journey through his early life and many works, which if anything could use a little bit more of what Martin Scorsese describes as Cohen's "renegade spirit".

Larry loves the industry and yet ... gets little love in return. Steve Mitchell's King Cohen does a great deal to redress that imbalance.

...a dyed-in-the-wool cinema rebel who deserves a far more elevated place in the genre pantheon...

For anyone who loves Cohen's work and offbeat storytelling sensibilities, you'll undoubtedly enjoy what Mitchell has crafted with King Cohen, and even cinephiles in general should have a lot of fun with this one, too.

[Larry] Cohen was one of the unsung Princes of NYC Grime, live-shooting his movies in crowds in order to obtain a Hitchcockian sense of authenticity. His productions were often chaotic and unprepared, but that's what lent them such a vital spark.

King Cohen is a master class in documentary filmmaking.
