CORMAN’S WORLD & SHARKTOPUS
International Anthony Burgess Foundation
3 Cambridge Street
Tickets: £6.50 (Plus booking fee).
Start Time: 7.30pm
CORMAN’S WORLD: ‘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.
SHARKTOPUS: ‘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!”
