Review While not necessarily considered one of Samuel Fuller's best films (or even one of his better ones) by a number of people I know, Merrill's Marauders is still a fascinating film in the director's oeuvre. While not as stylishly lurid as The Naked Kiss (1965) or as pessimistically sarcastic as Pickup on South Street (1953), it remains a fairly straightforward exploration of a theme that runs throughout Fuller's work: the relationship between the individual and the group...I said "fairly" straightforward. Compared to other Fuller films, Merrill's Marauders is straightforward...Along with all of this, Fuller is a master of editing and framing a scene. He has a knack for placing actors and items within a frame in a way that exploits every possible interpretation but doesn't endorse any of them. This talent is evident in almost all of his films. He shows just enough for the audience to get the gist of the story and pulls back from giving anything more (think of the pick-pocketing scene that opens Pickup On South Street). Merrill's Marauders is full of scenes like that. There's one where a soldier gets killed by the Japanese as he's trying to sneak to a food drop-off. Or another where the owner of a donkey dies from exhaustion after carrying the munitions his broken animal couldn't in order to save it.
