The maverick screenwriter and director Sam Fuller influenced filmmakers as different as Jean-Luc Godard, Wim Wenders and Quentin Tarantino. Martin Scorsese said of his work, "If you don't like the films of Sam Fuller, then you just don't like cinema."

Fuller died in 1997, but a new 7-disc selection of his work, The Sam Fuller Collection, has just been released by Sony Pictures. It's a vivid reminder that Fuller's films embody what's most enjoyable and enduring about pulp fiction.
