Roger Corman: Hollywood's Wild Angel

Film, Documentaries
It may have nothing particularly profound to say about its subject-hero, but this documentary is put together with the slam-bang panache of Corman's own movies as director. It also provides a welcome and entertaining update on Corman's own thoughts about his role at this time as head of his own immensely successful production company, New World Pictures. The mix of extracts, trailers, and anecdotal interviews with Corman and many of his protégés, past and present, makes it perfect late-night viewing.
