Movie Info

Sam Fuller's last film as a director, made during his self-imposed European exile, stars Keith Carradine as once glamorous pop singer Michael, who has been reduced to a grizzled street bum scavenging for booze and food. The cause of his downfall was his affair with the beautiful Celia (Valentina Vargas), a mistress of ruthless crime boss Eddie (Marc de Jonge). The mobster punished the singer "where it hurts most" -- by slitting his throat and thus ruining his career. Years later, Michael crosses paths with Eddie and his thugs again and gets a chance for revenge.more

Audience Reviews for Street of No Return


This is the last film Samuel Fuller's made before his dead. Who is Samuel Fuller, well he is one of the best Grindhouse Writers and Directors, as good and should have been as well know as Hitchcock, except that his stuff was grindhouse Art house type movies. This one was made in Portugal and stars Keith Carradine, who is a rock star his only problem is he falls in love with the wrong girl and a mob boss has Keith's throat cut for payback for messing with the wrong girl, so he becomes a drunken bum. During the film we see riots, cop chases, the works, but in the end the guy gets the girl. On the Grindhouse Scale its 4 stars but on the normal everyday movie watcher 3 1/2. I was lucky to find this one brand new in a pawn shop. And I thought Christmas Came in December. Again a great film for Grindhouse / Shock Cinema / Drive inn Movie Fans, all others if you don't know what Grindhouse is, its time you did, so do some research.
