Killer's Kiss

Stanley Kubrick's second film, KILLER'S KISS, made the world take notice. The young moviemaker won acclaim for this dazzling film noir about a struggling New York boxer (Jamie Smith) whose life is imperiled when he protects a nightclub dancer (Irene Kane) from her gangster boss (Frank Silvera). "Using his camera as a sandpaper block, Kubrick has stripped away the veneer from the prizefight and dancehall worlds," the New York Mirror proclaimed.

KILLER'S KISS not only lends considerable insight into future Kubrick classics - such as 'The Killing' and 'Full Metal Jacket'- but is also a remarkable film in its own right: the boxing match may be the most vicious this side of 'Raging Bull', and the famed final battle remains an action tour-de-f-rce. "An ambitious photographer...challenges the movie capital with KILLER'S KISS," the New York Daily News enthused. "The suspenseful venture augurs well for young Stanley Kubrick!"
