Retropath: POINT BLANK (1967)

Calling all nostalgia-freaks and celluloid junkies! Are you looking for the latest cinematic thrill? Retropath! has you covered. Specializing in the best flicks to stumble onto the screen, this series is guaranteed to deliver the wildest that cinema has to offer.

“John Boorman’s fabulous, fractured 1967 thriller is a key link between vintage noir and the great paranoid conspiracy films of the 1970s. Lee Marvin gives a slam-bang performance as Walker, a hard-nosed hoodlum double-crossed by his confederates after a daring heist: he’s shot point-blank and left for dead. Walker survives the assault (or does he?) and sets out to exact revenge. Boorman’s expressive, rhythmic film, informed by the European experiments of Resnais and Godard, and subverting linear time with its complex flashbacks and flashforwards, is both a terrific (and terrifically violent) thriller and, perhaps, a dazzling, dreamy evocation of consciousness. Scorsese and Schrader were admirers; Soderbergh’s The Limey, Nolan’s Memento, and Fincher’s Zodiac are all in its debt.” – Alamo Drafthouse
