    Stanley Kubrick`s second film

    Release Date:

    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 imperilled 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 prize fight and dancehall worlds.

    `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-force.
