Corman’s World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel movie scene

The man hard at work in Corman's World.

The 2011 documentary film Corman’s World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel presents a truly star-studded tribute to Roger Corman, Hollywood’s most prolific writer-director-producer and seminal influencing force in modern moviemaking over the past 60 years.

One of the most influential and prolific Hollywood filmmakers in the history of the medium (he’s made more than 300 films!), Corman’s imprint on American cinema not only spans over six decades, but has resulted in creating an indelible cinematic body of work (from 1962’s I Hate Your Guts! to 2010’s Sharktopus) as well as a legacy of training the next generation of actors, writer, directors and producers – many of whom have created cinema masterpieces of their own.

Directed by Alex Stapleton, Corman’s World‘s interview roster boasts such Hollywood icons and cinematic luminaries as filmmakers Martin Scorsese (Hugo), Brett Ratner (Tower Heist), Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction), Jonathan Demme (Something Wild), Ron Howard (The Dilemma), John Sayles (The Secret of Roan Inish) and Peter Bogdanovich (The Last Picture Show) and actors Robert De Niro (Taxi Driver), Jack Nicholson (Chinatown), David Carradine (The Long Riders), Peter Fonda (Dirty Mary Crazy Larry), William Shatner (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan), Pam Grier (The Arena), Bruce Dern (The King of Marvin Gardens), Sally Kirkland (JFK) and many others.

The R-rated film received enthusiastic notices from the critics when it opened in a limited run in theaters in December, 2011.

Bonus features include extended interview and video messages to Corman from select interviewees.

Filled with a slew of clips and testimonials, it’s definitely gonna be a fun one to check out on disc.
