Lee Marvin plays Walker, a crook who is out for revenge after being shot and left for dead by his partner-in-crime. Director John Boorman combines aspects of classic film noir with cutting-edge techniques from the French New Wave in order to create one of the most original and offbeat crime films of all time. Also starring Angie Dickinson, Point Blank is an adaptation of Richard Stark’s novel The Hunter, and was recently selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry.
Widescreen Wednesday Series – Films We Love
Join us for a series of films hand-picked by professors from the School of Theatre, Film & Television! Every film buff has a list of personal favorites – movies that have a special significance. Maybe it’s a film you loved as a kid, or one that resonates with you today. At each film screened this year, a faculty member will give an introduction that not only gives fascinating historical and artistic context, but also explains why they chose their particular film. Bonus: each feature will be preceded by the presentation of a short film made by a student in our Bachelor of Fine Arts program!
