If there’s one thing to thank Netflix’s Tiger King for, it’s reviving interest in 1981’s Roar. Both so messy as to be compelling, the former is a backstage pass to the bizarre, while the latter is a cult classic with claws. Roar was meant to be the magnum opus of director Noel Marshall (producer of The Exorcist), and to raise awareness about big cat poaching. Ostensibly a film about a Chicago family venturing to East Africa to visit their naturalist father who’s living among a hoard of wild big cats, Roar is actually a clear case against disrupting the animal kingdom on a whim. It notably stars Marshall’s own family, which includes then-wife Tippi Hedren (The Birds) and her teenage daughter Melanie Griffith (Working Girl), both of whom were seriously injured by various wildlife on set. Made for a cool 17 million dollars (only two million of which was earned back), Roar is an inimitable relic, a must-see.
