Point Blank

Continuing with my 1967 movie marathon, I re-watched Point Blank, which I had first watched a few years ago. I really like this movie, and the reason I had checked it out was because I was such a big fan of Darwyn Cooke’s Parker graphic novels, which are adaptations of Richard Stark’s series (this movie is itself an adaptation of Stark’s The Hunter, which Cooke also adapted). It’s noire, it’s about revenge, and I quite like the way its shot (it was directed by John Boorman). Well worth watching if you’re into crime flicks.
