UNDERWORLD U.S.A.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 11:30 AM MONDAY, OCTOBER 1  7 PM THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4 9 PM “Sam Fuller's harsh, obsessional 1960 crime drama is narrated in the style of a comic book gone berserk. Cliff Robertson is the neurotic hero, bent on avenging his father's death by infiltrating and destroying a crime syndicate that operates under the redolent name ‘National Projects.’ Corruption is all-pervasive in this vision of America, and Fuller disturbingly suggests that only a madman can make a difference. One image from Underworld—of a heavy striking straight at the camera—prompted Jean-Luc Godard to describe Fuller's films as ‘cinema-fist.’ There is no more apt phrase.” (Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader) 1961 Sam Fuller 1.85:1 B&W DCP 99 min.
