My Thoughts

An all-too-brief (55 minutes) glimpse at the genius of Sam Fuller, including interviews with Martin Scorsese, Tim Robbins, Jim Jarmusch and Quentin Tarantino. The highlights are the talks with Fuller himself, who comes across as a direct, powerful, honest character, the likes of which we just don't see anymore.

This was an extra on the Criterion Blu of Shock Corridor, though I'd originally seen it air on TCM last year.
