   SynopsisStanley 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-force."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!"
