Synopsis

Samantha Fuller directs this documentary tribute to her late film-maker father Samuel Fuller. 15 famous admirers and stars of the maverick director's films including James Franco, Mark Hamill, Tim Roth and Jennifer Beals read extracts from his memoirs in which he recounts his journey from being a New York reporter to volunteering in the Second World War and returning home to write and make films. Although his controversial, low-budget and independent films were not hugely successful and he would later struggle to gain financing, the writer-director achieved a cult-like status among those in the industry for his pioneering work with the camera and his willingness to tackle taboo subjects.
