Targets ★★★★½

Ahead of its time in a "chilled-to-the-bone" kind of way in regard to its portrayal of a seemingly motive-less mass murderer, not to mention in its cynical view of Hollywood. The opening and ending sequences show Bogdanovich to be a world-class filmmaker right out of the gate, and the usually menacing Boris Karloff shows a much more humane and vulnerable side in this film, making it one of his best performances. Deducting half a star for some of the weird attempts at comedy between Karloff and drunk Bogdanovich.
