Trivia:
The house where Walker (Lee Marvin) meets Brewster (Carroll O'Connor) was an actual house in the Hollywood Hills that was rented as a filming location. The Beatles once stayed in this house while visiting L.A. It was the basis for their song "Blue Jay Way" which is the name of the street on which the house sits.See more »

Point Blank is one of the most influential films of the 1960's, 12 June 2004
Author: kyle-garabadian from Columbus Ohio

Point Blank is one of those lost gems from the 1960's. It got buried because it was released around the same time as Bonnie and Clyde. This film combines all the great elements of the American action film with flourishes of European art house cinema. John Boorman's direction is excellent, and not enough can be said about Lee Marvin's performance. This is without question one of Lee's best tough guy performances. I don't understand how the previous reviewer can say this film seems "dated" and "funny for all the wrong reasons". It is as fresh and interesting as it was back at the time of its release. Those looking for it on DVD may want to know that the widescreen format version appears on TCM occasionally. You may want to pop in a tape the next time it is on until the DVD finally comes out.
