cinema3way ep1.3- “The Naked Kiss” directed by Samuel Fuller

• March 22nd, 2014

Amazingly enough, this movie was made in 1964!  Fuller deals with topics in this film that would be shocking today, and this film although a success made it difficult for Fuller to get a film made in Hollywood.  With dialogue that BITES, no wonder Tarantino is such a big fan of Samuel Fuller.  Find out more with John and Birsen in their 2nd film for a Fuller cinema3way!

cinema3way ep1.2- “The Steel Helmet” directed by Samuel Fuller

• March 22nd, 2014

Fuller's experience in the infantry informs this brutally honest film about the Korean war.  As the 1st film in this cinema3way, "The Steel Helmet" sets the tone for this immersion into Fuller's scathing portrayal of American society- as a Birsen says, "as decadent, stupid and racist."  This is much, much more than a simple war movie.  Up next, the steamy and shocking "The Naked Kiss".  If you like what we're doing- please let us know through your comments & sharing!
