Hail! Hail! King of the B's
Cannes favourite 'Corman's World' is a heart-warming portrait of one of
the true greats of American independent cinema, the champion of
outlaws, freaks and fools and the master of the macabre. All the more
touching as numerous interviews and testimonies paint a picture of a
curious man indeed: not a dark twisted soul but a warm and genteel man
with a wonderfully warped and fertile imagination.
What's more astonishing is the dazzlingly array of aspiring filmmakers
and actors he mentored during the 60's and 70's. Reading like a Who's
Who's of the golden age of the American auteur, Peter Bogdanovich,
Peter Fonda, Martin Scorsese, Jonathan Demme, Ron Howard, Robert De
Niro and David Carradine, amongst many others, all pay tribute here,
including a tearful Jack Nicholson.
Beginning in the 50's as a story analyst at 20th Century Fox, Corman
moved into writing, eventually selling scripts to fund his own
productions for the burgeoning American Independent Pictures. His debut
'Monster From the Ocean Floor' in 1954 was the start of a prolific
production output, with increasing forays into directing, notably
'Little Shop of Horrors' shot in only 2 days!
Corman really made his mark in the 60's. A series of classic Edgar
Allan Poe adaptations featuring the splendidly cast Vincent Price
define his legacy but the maverick Corman was often making use of down
time and vacant sets to pursue other projects during this period. Most
notable was the 1963 piece of Gothic absurd-ism, 'The Terror', using
sets from 'The Raven'. Proceeding with barely plot, nor script, a shoe
string cast including Nicholson and an ageing Boris Karloff, the
disparate visions of four different directors contributed to this
chaotic opus, including a young Francis Ford Coppola and even
Nicholson, who recalls this curious episode.
The 60's also saw critical acclaim for Corman, tackling themes such as
racism in the segregated south in 'The Intruder' and counter culture
movements in the 'The Wild Angels' and 'The Trip' but the 70's heralded
changes for Corman and he looks back on this era with a hint of
melancholy. With the release of 'Jaws' and then 'Star Wars' the big
studios finally caught up with the B's. Schlock horror from the deep
and invaders from space were now big budget and Corman was once more an
outsider and destined for the straight-to-video market in the coming
decade but before taking a back seat, Corman's masterstroke was to spot
the black comedy of the rubber shark and raise the stakes with
'Piranha' in 1978.
The denouement sees Corman still active today, well into his eighties,
on the set of the self-explanatory gore-fest 'Dinoshark'. His output
has barely abated since the 70's but he takes an increasingly hands-off
executive role these days. He remains ever philosophical, contented and
visibly touched by the receipt of an honorary Academy Award in 2009.
His calm and collected bizarre genius is deeply uplifting and I'd
recommend anyone take a trip into Corman's World.
