  • 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.
