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.

A creative and rousing adaptation of Samuel Fuller's superlative autobiography, made by his daughter.

May 15, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A Fuller Life is a cigar-chomping swagger through the life of an independent filmmaker from a time before the term "indie" had entered common parlance.

There has already been one very good documentary about the maverick American director Sam Fuller... This new film, made by his daughter, Samantha Fuller, covers similar terrain but in a much more personal way.

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

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.
