POINT BLANK

At last on DVD. I’ve been looking for this 1967 Lee Marvin film for years.  Directed by John Boorman and based on Donald Westlake’s The Hunter, it’s dated but still works to some degree.  I like Mel Gibson’s Payback (based on the same novel) better.  If you haven’t seen Point Blank, rent it along with Payback and watch them back to back.  It’s a tutorial on how movie making – directing, lighting, tinting, cutting, scoring, cinematography, etc. – changed over three decades.
