Movie Review - Point Blank (1967)

28 March 2013 10:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Point Blank, 1967.

Directed by John Boorman.

Starring Lee Marvin, Angie Dickinson, Keenan Wynn, Carroll O'Connor, Lloyd Bochner, Michael Strong and John Vernon.


After being double-crossed and left for dead, a mysterious man named Walker (Lee Marvin) single-mindedly tries to retrieve the rather inconsequential sum of money that was stolen from him.

In Point Blank, director John Boorman keeps Lee Marvin’s silent terror Walker in the shadows, right up until the unforgettably haunting last shot. You fear for Walker’s opponents, a cowardly John Vernon among them – he’s the bogeyman in his own film. He’s a stylised mythical spectre of whom his own wife Lynne (Sharon Acker) doesn’t know his first name, a potentially comical conceit if it weren’t for one thing: there’s a strong possibility Walker dies in the opening minutes of the film, and what follows is his exaggerated revenge fantasy.
