Noirvember 2021 continues with a look at John Boorman's Point Blank. Released in 1967, the film was based on the 1962 novel by Donald Westlake writing as Richard Stark. The film stars Lee Marvin as Walker, a man who was betrayed by his wife and his best friend. Now he’s back, seemingly from the dead, and goes on a quest to kill his friend and get back the money he feels he’s owed.
Jedidiah Ayres and Andrew Nette join Mike to discuss The Hunter, Point Blank, and the many cuts of Brian Helgeland's Payback.
