Home / Now Showing / MANCUNIAN MAN: THE LEGENDARY LIFE OF CLIFF TWEMLOW
Bouncer, author… filmmaker! Welcome to the story of Cliff Twemlow, the unlikeliest movie mogul you’ve never heard of… until now! Best known, up until now, for being the creator of the notorious video nasty G.B.H., fellow filmmaker Jake West mines the rich and incredible life of Cliff to extract the kind of story that can only exist within the movies. The story of a man who aspired, who dreamed, who created—first as an author of Tuxedo Warrior, the book that details his experiences as a bouncer, and then as a film mogul who, despite the obstacles and limitations, went on to put together an evergreen filmmaking family who worked on many, many films. Filled wall-to-wall with behind-the-scenes footage, never before seen scenes and heartfelt interviews with cast, crew and contemporaries of Cliff, MANCUNIAN MAN succeeds in drawing the portrait of an idealist whose passion superseded all else and allowed him to live his dream. Like AMERICAN SCREAM before it, MANCUNIAN MAN is destined to connect in a deeply emotional way with an audience in love with the movies—and in a town like L.A., Cliff’s going to finally get the recognition he has always deserved!
