I saw and liked Jonathan Demme's Caged Heat (1974) and I'm tempted to do a little immersion in the films of Roger Corman. I'm wondering if you had any recommendations of films he either produced or directed? Thank you.
A few Corman links: a profile-essay by Wheeler Winston Dixon at Senses of Cinema; two interviews with Corman at Bright Lights (one and two); and the "Corman at 80" blog-a-thon hosted by Tim Lucas.
