Le point de non-retour Réalisé par John Boorman
Grim, violent, elliptical, transfixingly sour and strange, it remains, 50 years later, a vital link between old and new, seeming at times like the tail end of classic noir, at others like the first sign of something fresh. It’s a hybrid of American, British, and French influences that becomes very much its own thing.

Boorman launched Marvin across time, his progress, heavy footfall on the soundtrack, as he cuts a wave of destruction across San Francisco looking for satisfaction. Point Blank illustrated just how close we could come to screen violence, how alive a city could look as an action hero spread death across it like a plague.

It was destined to slowly emerge as the rock-steady base of his reputation amongst cinephiles and an archetype and benchmark for the cinematic adventurousness of the period, all the more interesting and rich for being matched to genre storytelling. In Boorman’s hands, the script, credited to Alexander Jacobs and David and Rafe Newhouse, was transformed into a fractured and hallucinatory experience.
