This is London

An almost experimental discourse on crime, punishment and revenge brilliantly shot by Philip H. Lathrop.

Boorman brought a fresh eye to the LA locations in a film frequently remade but never equalled.

An intriguing, disorientating 60s artefact.

Has aged as well as Lee Marvin's brown jacket and tangerine shirt ensemble - that is to say, spectacularly.

Electric Sheep

Can be seen as heralding a turning point in Hollywood cinema, which was to lead to the innovative filmmaking of the 1970s and beyond.

Total Film

Boorman brings an existential bleakness and depth to his genre material (adapted from Donald E. Westlake's novel), and Marvin's minimal dialogue enhances the impact of his performance.

Gritty, raw crime drama featuring tough Lee Marvin.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

O roteiro pouco inspirado ganha novos contornos graças à performance durona de Marvin e, principalmente, as experiências de montagem feitas por Henry Berman.

| Original Score: 4/5

Goatdog's Movies

Heady stuff, and the third best film of 1967.

There are moments of breathtaking visual creativity, from the not-quite-freeze-frames over the opening credits to a series of confrontational close-ups when things turn violent.

Movie Metropolis

...one of the best, toughest, and most grimly cold-blooded mystery noirs Hollywood has given us.

Marvin carries much of the film on his gravelly, innate charm, but even he can't sustain one note that long

Influenced by the classy Euro-art style of French director Alain Resnais.

It gets back into the groove of Hollywood thrillers, after the recent glut of spies, counterspies, funny spies, anti-hero spies and spy-spier spies.

Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus

Scary and exciting at the same time, establishing Lee Marvin as the original Terminator.

Slant Magazine

What makes Point Blank so extraordinary is Boorman's virtuoso use of such unconventional avant-garde stylistics to saturate the proceedings with a classical noir mood of existential torpor and romanticized fatalism.

Lee Marvin makes a perfect, unfazed human center to John Boorman's bizarre, psychedelic universe.
