Watch Point Blank - Alternative Versions.
In the wake of his Cannes Best Director award for The General, Boorman's
stunning debut has been released with a new print. Unrelentingly downbeat,
this stylish crime thriller made in 1967 seems to have fuelled virtually
Elmore Leonard novel.
Steely, panther-like hitman Walker (marvellous Marvin) has been fitted up,
shot at and had $93,0000 stolen from him all because of ex-pal Mal Reese
(John Vernon). A tad upset he decides to resurrects himself, with the help
of the shadowy Yost (Keenan Wynn) for revenge and his payment.
Boorman greets us with a five-minute sequence that is crammed with curious
camera angles, fractured time-lines and carefully constructed compositions.
We're bombarded by a montage of piercingly violent images blended together
with fragments of a failed heist on Alcatraz Island and a pair of slugs
ripping into Walker's body. We're only privy to these flash snippets of
information, but they're still enough to help us empathise with Marvin's
A year or two later Walker is on a tourist boat trip to Alcatraz, being
propositioned by Yost. The creepy Yost knows where Mal and his Walker
ex-wife Lynne (Sharon Acker) are and is willing to reveal this to him, just
as long as he receives some information on a shadowy body called "The
Organisation". Walker simply nods. His dialogue is minimal, his obsession is
reflected through his curt questions, his sudden movements, his eyes and the
flashbacks that haunt him.
When he catches up with his cheating ex-wife he allows her to talk
uninterrupted in a desperate, forlorn monotone - "He's gone. Cold. Moved
out," she says. Walker barely takes it in, all that motivates him is the
thought, "Somebody's gotta to pay."
While others flounder, Marvin appears impenetrable like one of Sergio
Leone's cowboys. Only Clint Eastwood never conveyed this much emotion in his
Boorman's seminal film preceded the spate of fabulous paranoia flicks that
enriched 70s American cinema The Conversation, The Parallax View, All The
President's Men where a shadowy "Organisation" pulls the nation's strings.
Tarantino has since appropriated this organisation theme on a small-time
level, plagarising the black suits and the unwavering professionalism of the
violence. De Niro's ex-con in Jackie Brown is based on Marvin's Walker, as
are countless other performances.
Even Angie Dickinson, playing Lynne's sister Chris, leaves him cold. In a
remarkable scene she resorts to repeatedly slamming Walker's immovable slab
of a chest. He remains impregnable, emotionally void. She keeps on punching
until she finally collapses on the floor in a heap. They finally make love,
only for the isolation, the loss of identity, to continue. Is he an avenging
angel? Is he there at all?
"Hey, what's my last name?" asks a post-coital Chris. "What's my first
name?" he deadpans, answering a question with another question. Always
seeking answers, never providing them. No love left in him, only a need for
Point Blank contains inspiring visuals, a haunting soundtrack and some
stunning acting. Fabulous, groundbreaking cinema.
