Targets ★★★★

Fun Corman B movie with a lot of meta subtext. Whether it's babbling on about a 30s Howard Hawks movie on camera or using footage of Karloff from another film, Bogdanovich's extreme cinephilia shines through here. Almost feels like the B movie version of Contempt in how its narrative and relationship with cinema plays out on screen. Two strange narratives come together in a weird mesh and it somehow works to make a minor classic, a great start for Bogdanovich and swan song for Karloff.
