I don't know if I went into this on my Wrecking Crew notes but this is another movie that I backed on Kickstarter and wound up being the last person on Earth to actually see. In the movie's defense, I think there was an Austin screening of this at South by Southwest but again but I was sitting at home waiting for my DVD or whatever.
All of that aside, I really enjoyed this one. I feel like the film clips and interviews were exhaustively complete and the whole thing was put together proficiently. Plus Dick Miller's personality is as fun as you want it to be so it's a joy to step into his life a bit and see things from his perspective.
And you know... this film also kind of doubles as an informal doc on Roger Corman and his New World generation. Joe Dante, Alan Arkush, John Davidson, Jonathan Kaplan, et al. I think that's some very fertile ground as well. It's fun to hear from all of those guys as well. I guess a snippet of Jack Nicholson would've been a really nice surprise but whatever... I didn't pledge at that level.
So yay. This one flew by compared to The Connection. Next up is a bit of a throwback double feature to take me deep into the night.
