Featuring a veritable Who’s Who of filmmakers, from Mick Garris to Martin Scorsese, this documentary pays affectionate tribute to the director of such classics as It’s Alive and Q-The Winged Serpent.
Buckle up for the true story of writer, producer, director, creator and all-around maverick, Larry Cohen (Black Caesar, God Told Me To, Q the Winged Serpent, The Stuff, Phone Booth).
Told through compelling live interviews, stills and film/TV clips, the people who helped fulfill his vision, and industry icons such as Martin Scorsese, John Landis, Michael Moriarty, Fred Williamson, Yaphet Kotto and many more, including Larry himself, bring one-of-a-kind insight into the work, process and legacy of a true American auteur. Few can boast of a career as remarkable or prolific, spanning more than 50 years of entertaining audiences worldwide!
For anyone who loves Cohen’s work and offbeat storytelling sensibilities, you’ll undoubtedly enjoy what Mitchell has crafted with King Cohen, and even cinephiles in general should have a lot of fun with this one, too.Daily Dead
