“A spectacularly stylized and vividly photographed film.” – The New York Times

Chris’ pick for October is the 1967 John Boorman classic POINT BLANK, starring the unflappable Lee Marvin. Candid, sadistic but always beautifully photographed and deeply stylish, this is a film that demands to be seen in 35mm on the big screen.

A ruthless crook, Walker (Lee Marvin), is betrayed by his partner, Mal Reese (John Vernon), who leaves him for dead on Alcatraz Island. Having survived, Walker returns years later to get revenge. He gets his first lead when a mysterious man (Keenan Wynn) tells him that Reese is now part of a vast criminal organization and dating Walker’s wife’s sister, Chris (Angie Dickinson). But after contacting Chris, Walker discovers that in truth she loathes Reese and is willing to help him get justice.
