Some men dream of conquering the world. Roger Corman created his own.
Corman's World: Exploits Of A Hollywood Rebel is a tantalizing and star-studded tribute to Roger Corman, Hollywood's most prolific writer-director-producer, and seminal influencing f-rce in modern moviemaking over the last 60 years. Featuring interviews with Hollywood icons and cinematic luminaries, some who launched their careers within Corman's unforgettable world of filmmaking, including Paul W.S. Anderson, Peter Bogdanovich, Robert De Niro, Pam Grier, Ron Howard, Jack Nicholson, Martin Scorsese, along with many others, this documentary chronicles how Corman created his cult film empire, one low-budget success at a time, capitalizing on undiscovered talent, and pushing the boundaries of independent filmmaking.
Director Alex Stapleton weaves archival footage following Roger's illustrious career: From his early days of genre-defining classics including The Fast and the Furious, the original Little Shop of Horrors and The Wild Angels (which in 1966 was his 100th film) - to present day video of him and his wife Julie on location, still at work as they continue to produce and distribute films outside the studio system: fast, cheap and out-of-this-world!
