Shock Corridor: The Criterion Collection

In Shock Corridor, the great American writer-director-producer Samuel Fuller masterfully charts the uneasy terrain between sanity and madness. Seeking a Pulitzer Prize, reporter Johnny Barrett (Peter Breck) has himself committed to a mental hospital to investigate a murder. As he closes in on the killer, insanity closes in on him. Constance Towers costars as Johnny's coolheaded stripper girlfriend. With its startling commentary on racism and other hot-button issues in sixties America and daring photography by Stanley Cortez , Shock Corridor is now recognized for its far-reaching influence.
