    It's about time Larry Cohen had a documentary made about him,his films are low budget classics and are more original than most big Hollywood movies I am a big fan of The Stuff and Q the Winged Serpent and it's great to see there creator get his rich reward.

    Soy un gran apasionado de los documentales sobre cine y sus personas destacables, y King Cohen sin ser uno de los que más me ha atrapado, si que ha sido una curiosa experiencia, sobretodo porque era un total ignorante de la figura de Larry Cohen. Como forma de descubrir su interesantísima filmografía, lo influyente que fue en el cine (sobretodo en la dà (C)cada de los setenta), y la persona en sí, uno de esos creadores infatigables a los que no les importa que el mundo se les ponga en contra pues ya ellos econtraran la forma de seguir adelante (algo así como Roger Corman). Si os gusta el cine, especialmente el de culto, y esas pequeñas joyas perdidas, echad un vistazo al documental porque en eso si que no tiene desperdicio.

    IT'S STILL ALIVE A lifelong (anti) Hollywood hustler, Larry Cohen relishes recounting some of the fabulous tales that make up his subversive career. And what a career! As a prolific writer, Cohen penned scripts for numerous television (remember television?) shows in the sixties (The Fugitive!), and soon the big screen bug bit, and Larry succumbed. Perturbed at losing creative control to others, Cohen began a string of independent films with a gonzo attitude and a very tight wallet, berthing such B-movie classics like "Bone" (aka: "Dial Rat for Terror"), "Q: The Winged Serpent" and "It's Alive". Even though those movies are quite, uh, unique, there's no denying the spirit of their cinematic father. Cohen often worked directly on location, with no permits, using the unsuspecting public during his guerilla shoots, adding a decidedly unpredictability wow factor to many of his wildly uneven films. "King Cohen" takes a fanboyish documentary peek at one of Hollywood's true, overlooked treasures. Glowing accounts from bigwigs like Martin Scorsese and J.J. Abrams, are interspersed with fond filming recollections from actors Michael Moriarty and Fred Williamson, but most importantly is Larry himself, who remains a crackerjack trove of crazy ideas. Well worth the watch. - hipCRANK
