Weekend Matinee: POINT BLANK

This one should be more well known than it is.

In a trippy, neo-noir, almost classic, John Boorman directs Lee Marvin along a path of revenge. After being left for dead following the perfect heist, Marvin is out to settle the score against his old partner.

I saw this one a few weeks ago and was blown away by it's taut story and compelling visuals, even though I'm still kind of digesting what happened in it. It's great stuff, you should totally check it out.

That said, this clip is funny out of context, so enjoy Lee Marvin's remodeling methods:

I told you to change those ugly sheets...
