Point Blank

SUPPORT
Arizona

Special CRITIC’S CHOICE screening! See the classic 1967 thriller, Point Blank, starring Lee Marvin, on the big screen in 35mm, selected by noted film critic and political commentator, John Powers, critic at large for NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Mr. Powers will participate in a post-film discussion with Loft Cinema Program Director, Jeff Yanc.
John Boorman’s fabulous, fractured 1967 thriller Point Blank is a key link between vintage noir and the great paranoid conspiracy films of the 1970s. Tough guy 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. But Walker seemingly survives the assault and sets out to exact revenge, cutting a swath of possibly metaphysical mayhem through a mod, candy-colored Los Angeles. Boorman’s crisp, brutal, dazzling adaptation of a Donald Westlake novel is perhaps the definitive ‘60s crime film, co-starring Angie Dickinson, Keenan Wynn and Carroll O’Connor. (Dir. by John Boorman, 1967, USA, 92 mins., Not Rated)
