Targets ★★★★½

heartlessly exudes the banality of evil. the sniper settles himself, shoots 3 or 4 targets, stops for a coke, casually starts shooting again. real life has fully caught up with this film, and it lends it a chilling resonance. the boredom (and ease) with which the killer conducts his preparations is stunning, and the shooting in his POV makes the viewer complicit. a startlingly accomplished debut from bogdanovich, and surprising that it isn't talked about more, given the prophetic nature of its plot.
