Point Blank
What makes Point Blank so extraordinary is not its departures from genre conventions, but Boorman’s virtuoso use of such unconventional avant-garde stylistics to saturate the proceedings with a classical noir mood of existential torpor and romanticized fatalism. The action is set against (and within) a sunny corporate L.A. landscape characterized by its sterile, overwhelming enormity–situated in the corners of Boorman’s off-kilter compositions, a colossal architectural or natural edifice weighing down upon his back, Walker is denied sanctuary.
