  1. Great selection! The Big Heat is one of my favorite films. However, Point Blank – Hollywood trying to be French New Wave. Ugh. Despite the great performances by Marvin and Dickinson.

    • Each to their own, Bob. I am, of course, a huge fan of THE BIG HEAT. I also adore pretty much everything about Boorman’s POINT BLANK. It’s a film I find endlessly fascinating although I know it is not to everybody’s taste.
