Classic Trailers: POINT BLANK

     Walker (Lee Marvin) just wants his money and he is going to do whatever it takes to get it. The classic John Boorman film Point Blank (1967), is the tale of a man who was double crossed and goes after the people who screwed him over. The organization has taken his wife and money, and Walker is pissed.This film is one of the great thrillers of the late 60s and Lee Marvin is full of brute and hostility. The vengeance and rage seeps through his body from beginning to end. It is the crime thriller that puts the single person up against the massive organization. The film has a brilliant opening, that features crisp editing and sounds. The footsteps that over play Walker as he begins to seek out the culprits is haunting and powerful. The existential ending and twist is classic as well. The film also stars Angie Dickinson, Carroll O'Connor and John Vernon. Check it out and realize that Lee Marvin is a true badass! Enjoy.
