Based on Donald E. Westlake's novel The Hunter, John Boorman's gangster film hauntingly merges a generic revenge story with a European art cinema sensibility. In Alcatraz to divvy up the spoils from a robbery, thief Walker (Lee Marvin) is instead shot point blank by his double-crossing friend Mal Reese (John Vernon) and left to die while Reese takes off with Walker's wife Lynne (Sharon Acker) and his $93,000. Resurrected, the stone-faced Walker returns to Los Angeles a couple of years later to seek revenge on Mal with the help of the enigmatic Yost (Keenan Wynn) and Lynne's sister Chris (Angie Dickinson). Wanting little but his cash, Walker implacably penetrates Mal's lair and the hierarchy of the shady "Organization," registering no emotion about the string of murders left in his wake, as his thoughts repeatedly return to the past that brought him there.

From the time John J. Macreedy steps off the train in Black Rock, he feels a chill from the local residents. The town is only a speck on the map and few if any strangers ever come to the place. Macreedy himself is tight-lipped about the purpose of his trip and he finds that the hotel refuses him a room, the local garage refuses to rent him a car and the sheriff is a useless drunkard. It's apparent that the locals have something to hide but when he finally tells them that he is there to speak to a Japanese-American farmer named Kamoko, he touches a nerve so sensitive that he will spend the next 24 hours fighting for his life.

Based on Donald E. Westlake's novel The Hunter, John Boorman's gangster film hauntingly merges a generic revenge story with a European art cinema sensibility. In Alcatraz to divvy up the spoils from a robbery, thief Walker (Lee Marvin) is instead shot point blank by his double-crossing friend and left to die while Reese takes off with Walker's wife and his $93,000. Resurrected, the stone-faced Walker returns to Los Angeles a couple of years later to seek revenge on Mal with the help of the enigmatic Yost (Keenan Wynn) and Lynne's sister Chris (Angie Dickinson). Brutal in the violence that it shows and suggests, Point Blank opened in the U.S. in the same period as Bonnie and Clyde, becoming one more testament to the genre-bending and ground-breaking possibilities of the nascent Hollywood New Wave. Although Point Blank was mostly overlooked in 1967, Boorman's visual adventurousness, and Marvin's amoral and apathetic antihero, have since made Point Blank seem one of the key films of the mid-late '60s, a precursor to revisionist experimentations from Martin Scorsese to Quentin Tarantino. It was remade as the 1999 Mel Gibson vehicle Payback.

Genre: Pop Rock | Label: Mammoth Records | Catalog: 80083

Marvin the Album is one of those recordings that cannot be fully absorbed on the first or second listen. But after several listens, one starts to realize just how strong this abstract pop-folk-rock release is. With a quirky and waifish vocal style along the lines of Suzanne Vega, lead singer Angie Hart can take a bit of getting used to. Her singing is definitely an acquired taste, but it's a taste well worth it. The more one listens to Frente!'s strange acoustic cover of New Order's "Bizarre Love Triangle," as well as subtle originals like "Explode," "Pretty Friend," and "Lonely," the more one realizes how expressive and appealing she is. Guitarist Simon Austin, meanwhile, handles most of the vocals on "See/Believe," which sounds like a bizarre cross between jazz and Bob Dylan. Frente! isn't a band that stresses the obvious, and the Australians use subtlety and understatement to great advantage on this striking date.

Specialty Profiles songs But this sampling of some of his Specialty sides finds him at his best, on tracks like his much-recorded "Boogie Chillen No.2," the simmering "I'm Mad," the brooding "Nothin' But Trouble," and the risque "Grinder Man." Featuring many solo cuts (the artist's idiosyncratic timing defeated most accompanists), these quality sides display Hooker in his prime.
