Critic Reviews for A Fuller Life

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

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.

Feb 26, 2015 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

This affectionate documentary by his daughter, Samantha, distinguishes itself from most such endeavors by minimizing the usual clip-illustrated filmography to focus largely on his formative experiences.

A loving tribute for those well versed in the Fuller canon, the doc may prove less revelatory than entertaining for neophytes.

Top Critic

It's a proud film but average.

Aug 5, 2014 | Full Review…

A Fuller Life is too small and too celebratory to contain analysis -- and the unpretentious Fuller would have thanked God for that, whatever he might have said to himself. Nonetheless, it's a solid primer about a remarkable man's journey.
