A provocative, politically engaged satirist whose beat was the grindhouse circuit, Larry Cohen was equally comfortable working inside and outside the Hollywood system. King Cohen: The Wild World of Filmmaker Larry Cohen, Steve Mitchell's generous cinematic portrait, explores the director's career from the vantage of his fans and colleagues. The American Cinematheque will premiere the new documentary to West Coast audiences followed by two of the director's quintessential 1980s pictures: The Stuff, about a yogurt that kills, and Q: The Winged Serpent, about an Aztec deity that lives atop the Chrysler Building, picking off nude sunbathers at will. Cohen and Mitchell will appear for a discussion following the first feature.
