[I]f it doesn't offer anything new to our understanding of Corman, as filmmaker, producer, or person, it nicely encapsulates his legacy... Full Review
Rating: 3.5/4 -- At one point in this joyful documentary, Jack Nicholson discusses the countless cheapies produced by Roger Corman and cracks, "By mistake, he actually made a good picture every once in a while." Full Review
Surprisingly, there's a very sour tone to "Corman's World" that undercuts a lot of the attempts to look back at Roger Corman's films with a laugh and a nostalgic gleam. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- The results are solid and educative. Full Review
Along the way this documentary interviews the likes of Nicholson, Ron Howard and (of course) Corman himself. Add some scarce footage and you've got a winner that is sure to please die-hard fans as well as newbies. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- A supremely watchable documentary-tribute to the exploitation king Roger Corman. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- None of it gets us anywhere truly close to the beating heart of an essentially retiring figure. Full Review
