Director Samuel Fuller was never accused of running away from a tough subject, and his final feature, Street of No Return (1989), is a brutal evaluation of the human condition that forms a logical extension from such hard-bitten Fuller fare as The Naked Kiss (1964) and White Dog (1982). A desultory and haphazardly talented musician hooks up with a woman who represents some form of new beginning for him. Unfortunately, she is already taken, the compromised girlfriend of a slick operator who incites race riots with the intention of devaluing a group of properties and turning them into profitable crack houses. The musician, contrary to his guiding principles, finds himself involved, attempting to foil the foul scheme. Did the warbler really think he could come out ahead? In a Samuel Fuller film?
