Corman's World: Exploits Of A Hollywood Rebel - Preview & competition

Corman's World

Preview by Jack Foley

THE star-studded and critically acclaimed documentary Corman’s World: Exploits Of A Hollywood Rebel is essential viewing for every movie-buff and it’s out to buy on DVD and Blu-ray from Monday, March 26.

To celebrate, we are giving a way a copy of the documentary on Blu-ray.

Directed by Alex Stapleton, this affectionate, witty and hugely entertaining documentary charts the Oscar winning filmmaker’s career from his early days working in the mail room at 20th Century Fox to the set of one of his most recently produced “creature features”, Dinoshark.

Leaving no doubt as to Corman’s seminal influence on modern-day cinema, the film features enlightening interviews with an incredible cavalcade of Hollywood icons, luminaries and A-listers (many of whom began their own careers working under Corman), including Jack Nicholson, Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard, Joe Dante, Quentin Tarantino, John Sayles, Jonathan Demme, Eli Roth, Peter Fonda, Peter Bogdanovich, William Shatner and countless others.

Combining archival footage with contemporary clips and interviews, Corman’s World chronicles how one man created an empire, cultivating undiscovered talent and pushing the boundaries of what independent filmmakers could achieve when working outside the studio system.

From Corman’s original genre-defining works such as The Fast And The Furious, The Little Shop Of Horrors and his classic film adaptations of Edgar Allan Poe stories, to his distribution of the art house films of Bergman, Kurosawa, Fellini and Truffaut and his continuing work as one of the world’s leading independent film producers, Stapleton’s superb documentary recounts a career that has spanned an astonishing six decades.
