R.I.P. to one of the most fascinating filmmakers as well as a person, to ever walk this Earth! And I still love "Wicked Stepmother" to this day.
A must-see documentary for anyone on here, for sure. LC is/was an absolute legend and a pioneer. The film world would be full of blank creative space had Larry Cohen not been there to fulfill his dream. He deserves a Lifetime Achievement Award... his resume is remarkable and beyond impressive. Rest In Peace, sir... we love ya! - R. Reed Rosson
A rollicking documentary, as befits the spirit of a gonzo filmmaker. So many good interviews, this is a really nice tribute to a rare gem of a man. Bravo, Steve Mitchell.
I didn't realize he had so many awesome scripts in addition to his directorial credits, very insightful doc
A fantastic documentary about a brilliant guy!
