  • Built around readings of Fuller's writing by the likes of Mark Hamill, Bill Duke, William Friedkin, and Joe Dante, this documentary from Samantha Fuller tells the story of her father's life in his own words.

  • It adds up to a rich portrait of an extraordinary man, half-tortured artist, half cigar-chomping action hero.

    May 4, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Whilst the surrounding film is a little rough-and-ready, the core dialogue between auteur and audience encapsulates the kind of penetration and energy inherent to [Samuel Fuller's] oeuvre.
