  • A creative and rousing adaptation of Samuel Fuller's superlative autobiography, made by his daughter.

    May 15, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A Fuller Life is a cigar-chomping swagger through the life of an independent filmmaker from a time before the term "indie" had entered common parlance.

  • There has already been one very good documentary about the maverick American director Sam Fuller... This new film, made by his daughter, Samantha Fuller, covers similar terrain but in a much more personal way.

    May 14, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It adds up to a rich portrait of an extraordinary man, half-tortured artist, half cigar-chomping action hero.

    Guardian
    Top Critic
  • Writer, director, reporter, soldier, lover, father and lifelong outsider: the title of this warm doc about the legendary Samuel Fuller pretty much sums it up.

    May 11, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A loving and illuminating documentary about an American original, Samuel Fuller.
