Point Blank ★★★★

John Boorman's deconstructed noir, a tapestry of crash-bang action, chiaroscuro composition and dream logic plotting, bridges the gap between classic Hitchcockian suspense and the 1970s paranoia zeitgeist. It's also deliberately obtuse and hard to follow, and not immediately rewarding. A film to appreciate more than love at first sight, but it's one you won't forget in a hurry.
