Fascinating journey through a great directors life
6 January 2000 | by (Maine) – See all my reviews

Tim Robbins, Quentin Taraninto, and Martin Scorcese all contribute to this wonderful timeline of Sam Fullers life and, more impressively, his movies. From the Big Red One to Merrils Mauraders, he made a lasting impression on American culture and this special does an excellent job bringing to light the stories behind the movies.
