Another month another brilliant GRIMM UP NORTH double bill as the fantastic festival organisers bring us a Roger Corman Double Bill screening on the 16th March celebrating the B-Movie king with the documentry about his life and work Corman’s World and one of his latest schlock offerings Sharktopus.
‘Only in Corman’s World will you bewilderingly witness Jack Nicholson choking back tears on camera for the love of the man who gave him his start in the business‘. Alex Stapelton’s brilliant documentary tracks the triumphant rise of Hollywood’s most prolific writer-director-producer, the true godfather of independent filmmaking. A feature-length documentary about Corman’s life, career and remarkable influence on modern moviemaking.
‘Absurdly-titled, cheaply produced and executed with tongue firmly in cheek’. Perhaps the best response to this essentially critic-proof monstrosity is articulated by the male adolescent tourist who, on seeing the sharktopus graphically attack one of the performers at an open-air show, is heard to declare, “Dude, that’s awesome!”
Date: 16th March. Venue: THE INTERNATIONAL ANTHONY BURGESS INSTITUTE and for tickets and info click Here.
