A gripping tribute to a true American maverick. Samuel Fuller's adventure-filled life as journalist, infantryman, novelist and filmmaker spanned the entire world and encompassed major turning points in 20th-century history. His body of work as a director, writer and producer is one of the most radical and exhilarating in the history of American cinema.
