Customer Review

Killer's Kiss (1955) was, after the barely-released and now-unavailable Fear & Desire, the first of Kubrick's movies to see the light of day. It draws heavily upon a short boxing documentary which Kubrick produced earlier called "The Day of the Fight", which would have made a great 'extra' on this disc, but is none the worse for that, and certainly has its moments. Look out for the scene amongst the shop dummies and the chase through the streets near the end which is eerily prescient of the much later 2001 - A Space Odyssey [Blu-ray] [1968].

Worth a look if you're a cinema fan and want to see how Kubrick's style developed from this early attempt.

There is also a great Kubrick triple 'starter-pack' which includes this film, Stanley Kubrick Collection - The Killing/Paths Of Glory/Killer's Kiss [DVD]
