King Cohen, the buzzed-about documentary about maverick filmmaker Larry Cohen, won’t be out for another week. But you can see a clip of it right now! Below lies the tale of the creation of special effects in Coen’s 1982 creature feature “Q: The Winged Serpent.”
According to King Cohen, a new documentary from director Steve Mitchell, the filmmaker Larry Cohen is a bulldozer of creative force who broke through “the rules” of Hollywood to create a slew of films that shattered racial stigmas and skirted the boundaries of good taste. By looking back over the life and career of this writer-director-producer, Mitchell reveals an inspiring story that like his subject, manages to provide pure, unadulterated entertainment.
