WRITTEN REVIEW: Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel

By CORY CARR
Corman’s World takes a look at the lifelong career of filmmaker Roger Corman. Though he is known best for B-movies and exploitation, this film is a peek into the mind behind all of the marauding bikers, sea monsters, topless women and exploding helicopters.

Corman’s World tells the tale of a young man who was trying to make a name for himself while defying every authority figure that he could. Once known, he began working social commentary into the films that he made. Balancing text and sub-text to tell intellectual stories, under budget and filling theater seats. Before long the “Women in Prison” genre was born.


Roger Corman is responsible for over 400 films, and has started more acting/directing careers than any other film maker. Corman’s World is littered with these actors and directors [David Carradine, Jack Nicholson, Pam Greer, Joe Dante. . .] who share their tales of both the ups and downs as they worked with Roger Corman.

While not every one of the 400+ films that Roger has made are “five star” classics, his career has left an indelible, and inspirational mark on the film industry. Even now as he produces films like Piranhaconda for the Syfy channel, he is fertilizing the next generation of sprouting young actors and film makers.

Corman’s World is informative, entertaining and defiantly checking out!
